Rt Hon Dame Cheryl Gillan MP House of Commons, LONDON, SW1A 0AA 21 August 2020 RT HON DAME CHERYL GILLAN MP ENCOURAGES CONSTITUENTS TO RAISE THEIR VIEWS ON THE DESIGN FOR THE AMERSHAM VENTILATION SHAFT

This week, HS2 Ltd have launched the design for the Amersham Ventilation Shaft headhouse and want to hear your views.

The Amersham Ventilations Shaft is one of five structures that will be built above the 16-kilometre-long Chiltern tunnel in order to provide ventilation and emergency access on the ground.

Due to COVID-19, HS2 Ltd will not be holding public events for the foreseeable future, but have decided to hold a series of online webinars on 8th, 10th and 17th September in order to give residents the opportunity to hear and ask questions about the Amersham Ventilation Shaft design. You can register for one of these webinars on Eventbrite and search for “HS2 Amersham vent shaft design engagement.”

Dame Cheryl said “if HS2 is going ahead it is important that local people have a say in the legacy however unwelcome the project continues to be. We need to ensure that even in the wake of COVID-19 and restrictions in public spaces that community engagement remains a high priority for HS2 Ltd, especially on a key design element like the Amersham vent shaft locally.”
