Chesterfield Canal Trust says it 'welcomes' news that discussions have been taking place between HS2 Ltd. and local authorities over the route of the new line between London and Leeds, but has warned the proposals 'serve to blight' further regeneration of the waterway.
It comes after concerns were raised over the impact the line would have on the 300-year-old canal and amid claims the route was drawn up using out of date maps.
HS2 Ltd. said the route is 'the Government's initial preferred route' and it is now able to 'address concerns about specific sites'.
Members of the Trust have now requested discussions with HS2 officials before a full public consultation is launched later this year.
