Notification of Service of Temporary Possession Notices - HS2

The Parish Council have received from HS2, a letter titled ‘notification of service of temporary possession notices over the land at the village pond and Riverside Walk’. (See map below for the area affected).

What this means is that HS2 do not require the land for any works associated with construction of the tunnel however they will need to take temporary possession of the land should the tunnelling works have a detrimental effect on the flow of the River Misbourne to the extent that corrective works are then required.

According to the current schedule, the tunnelling works will be below Chalfont St Giles from 22 August 2022 for 12 days but this schedule may vary as the tunnel boring machine progresses.

Any events or activities planned for these areas that may need to be cancelled will be covered by the HS2 legislation High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Act 2017 schedule 16.Temporary possession
