My petition is for the Government to “Review the route and construction plans for HS2 for environmental reasons.”
Current plans for HS2 involve the destruction of woodlands and use of unsustainable building materials.We want all ancient woodland left untouched and modern, environmentally friendly materials to be used, not materials like concrete.
This petition is not saying stop HS2, but is calling on the Government to review the route and construction plans for this project, because of the concerns of people who care about our environment and wildlife and we want to reduce the irreversible destruction to our ancient woodlands.
At 10,000 signatures, government will respond to this petition.
At 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
Deadline 12 April 2021
Thank you. Holly.
