Do no harm to the bats in the barn

We think Wendover is a special sort of place. It's a community with a large conservation area adjoining an area of outstanding natural beauty (ANOB) in a beautiful part of the Chilterns. There is no doubt that the HS2 line when completed will leave a permanent scar on the landscape, with trees and hedgerows decimated. We will need to ensure that HS2 do all they can to rectify the problems they create with landscaping and replanting of trees etc. The visual approach is a key area of concern for us and we are working hard to seek mitigations to ensuring technical designs are sympathetic to the surrounding environment.
