Turweston HS2 Walkabout
Very productive meeting and walkabout this morning in Turweston with Parish Council Chairman David Richards, Parish Councillor Hazel Morrison and Simon Strutt. A number of important issues relating to HS2 affecting the village (eg HGV movements) which I will be raising urgently with the HS2 Minister and Chief Executive of HS2 Ltd. It is particularly appalling that HS2 Ltd have allowed a significant number of properties they have bought in the village to sit empty, including the listed old Post Office which is visibly decaying without proper maintenance. These homes are not on the line of route, not due to be demolished and should be made available for residential use and to ensure they are properly maintained.
