Anna Soubry: 'HS2 is a welcome investment for the East Midlands'

HS2 is a massive investment in the future of the country (some £33 billion) and also welcome investment in the East Midlands and in particular, Broxtowe.

In my view, given the time scale and the real opportunities HS2 brings for business, it is imperative that Broxtowe Borough Council takes a responsible and long term view of the implications and opportunities HS2 brings to the Toton and Stapleford area and to the rest of Broxtowe.

I believe Broxtowe Borough Council has, for too long, regarded "development" as building hundreds of houses, when in fact development is far more than that.

– Anna Soubry, MP for Broxtowe
