Phase 2b consultations

On the 6 June 2019 the government announced the launch of a Design Refinement Consultation on 11 proposed changes to the design of the HS2 Phase 2b route. These proposed changes are based on design development, environmental assessment and consideration of feedback received to recent consultations and ongoing engagement. The proposed changes only affect part of the Phase 2b route.

The consultation closes on Friday 6 September 2019.

For more information and assets you can visit our Phase 2b page or view the Phase 2b timeline.

In order to deliver HS2 successfully, we need to understand and manage the full impact of the project. The best way we can do this is by talking and listening to those affected, as well as working closely with local authorities and elected representatives.

We are committed to engaging with communities on the various aspects of the new railway, and will do so using 4 types of engagement:


We will keep communities informed on the issues that affect them through clear, timely and tailored communications.

  • You can find out what is happening in your local area and sign up for notifications on our digital engagement site Commonplace.
  • We are committed to make you aware, in advance, of any activities taking place in your area through letters and leaflets.
  • We also hold local public events to answer your questions and concerns, advertised locally using event flyers and posters.


We will create opportunities for local communities to get involved throughout the design and delivery of the project, so that we take into consideration how they live, work and play.


We will arrange formal, written, public consultations on the project. We run regular consultations to allow members of the public and other interested parties to comment on our key submissions such as, route refinements, our environmental statements and other legislation. Details about open and concluded consultations are listed on the consultations section of GOV.UK.


We will provide free and accessible options for communities to contact us to seek information and raise their concerns. We will respond to their requests and comments in a timely and comprehensive way.

If you have a question or would like to find out about our complaints process visit our contact and help page.
