Plans to extend Britain’s new railway, High Speed Two, to the North moved a step closer today with the opening of a new public consultation which invites people’s views on the latest proposals for the railway.
Today (Tuesday 6th October) the Longdon Club & Institute in Rugeley has become the latest to benefit from the HS2 Community and Environment Fund, as it is announced that they have been awarded £75,000 for renovations at the Memorial Hall in Longdon.
Businesses and residents in West London are set to benefit from a new Employment and Skills Hub which has been set up with HS2 funding. The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) has been successful in its bid to the HS2 Business and Local Economy Fund, securing over a quarter of a million pounds. The hub is being delivered in partnership with London Borough of Brent, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, London Borough of Ealing, West London College and the Department for Work and Pensions.
