MP calls meeting over HS2 plans

An MP is holding two meetings today over plans for the high speed rail project which some residents fear may blight their village. Phase two of the HS2 rail link to London from the north is expected to travel through Killamarsh ending at Sheffield Meadowhall.

This could mean some houses may have to be demolished and plans to restore the village's railway station may not go ahead.

Natascha Engel who is the MP for North East Derbyshire, wants to give residents in Killamarsh a chance to have say over the project. The consultation meetings are taking place at 1.30pm at Renishaw Community Centre and 4pm at Killamarsh Church Hall.
