Petition Hold a public vote on HS2 project as it is being paid for by the public
I would like a public vote/referendum on whether we want to spend in excess of £100 billion on a train project which will destroy or irreparably damage natural habitats and wildlife sites along the route.
To me, the damage & cost to public land, wildlife & nature at a time of Environmental emergency & recession outweighs the long-term benefits of travel. The HS2 project should be decided by the people paying for it, the tax payers. It’s destroying communities & environment.
