We’re making improvements to your local community website

As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping communities informed about the planning and delivery of the HS2 project we are introducing a number of improvements to the ways in which we share information with you.

We’re moving your local website within the HS2 website

This summer we will be moving the contents of this website over to the 'In your area' section of the main HS2 website. We are also changing the way that we issue email updates about the project and giving you more choice about how you would like to receive information from us.

These changes will help to

  • provide you with quicker access to key documents and information about the HS2 project, and
  • make it is easier for you to be kept informed about our works and activities in your local area.
  • We have published local community landing pages for each section of the route between London, the West Midlands and Crewe. These provide information about the HS2 route within each area. Over the coming weeks we will be adding further pages and information to each area.

    Once we have moved all of the key pages and information from this website onto the HS2 website later this summer, we will stop updating this website. Visitors to this website will be signposted to the new pages within

    At this point, we will stop publishing updates to this website and you will no longer receive email notifications from this website.

    We are aiming to complete this exercise in July this year and will write to you to confirm this closer to the time.

    We’re making changes to the way we share updates with you by email

    In addition to moving the local website we are also taking this opportunity to improve our mailing lists and create greater flexibility around how you receive information from us.

    We will no longer be using this website or Commonplace to issue email updates to you. Instead, we are asking that you sign up to receive information from HS2 directly. We will continue to produce regular updates about the project, including notifications of our upcoming works, how it’s being constructed and what we’re doing to make it less disruptive.

    If you would like to continue to receive updates from HS2 you can sign up for email notifications at . We will ask you to confirm your email address as part of the sign-up process.

    Once we have moved across all of the pages and information from this website over to the HS2 website we will stop issuing emails from this website. Instead, you will receive emails directly from us about the parts of the project that you’ve expressed an interest in.

    The personal information you provide will be handled in accordance with current data protection legislation and only used for the purposes for which you have provided it.

    Find out more about what we will do to keep your information safe on our Personal information charter .
