HS2 delays loom after judges overturn planning rule

Planning permission required for HS2 work could be delayed after the Court of Appeal ruled councils are responsible for assessing the local impact of works for the project, rather than HS2 itself.

The verdict is part of a dispute that began more than two years ago, when Hillingdon Council rejected an application from HS2 to create a habitat for great crested newts. The proposal formed part of preparations for building the Colne Valley Viaduct.

Angus Walker, Partner, in our infrastructure and planning team comments on this in an article for Construction News.
