Next steps for HS2 and the National Trust

The gardens in autumn at Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire

We are committed to playing our part to ensure that HS2 leaves a positive environmental legacy.

As designs develop over the course of 2019, we'll continue to engage with HS2 Ltd to get the best possible outcome for the special places within our care.

We'll continue to work collaboratively with other stakeholders impacted by Phase 2b including other charities, local authorities and those who live near, work at, and visit our places.

Where possible we'll seek to build consensus with others about mitigation proposals and encourage HS2 to incorporate these into designs in advance of the formal Environmental Statement.
