On Friday I visited Edmonson Close in Dunchurch where local residents are concerned about a planning application for a small housing development that could result in additional parking pressures in an area where it is already difficult to park.
I took Sir Mark Worthington, the Construction Commissioner for HS2 on a tour of the current construction sites for HS2 in my constituency. During the tour I highlighted the current challenges faced by local residents some of whom he was able to meet.
For nearly 10 years, HS2 has been a significant issue in this Constituency. A number of my constituents are directly affected, with houses or businesses that are in or near the path of the line, and many more will be affected by the construction of the line and the disruption it will bring.
