The HS2 rail link will affect many people in regions all along the proposed 140 mile route, with plans that could demolish properties and close businesses. Landscapes are also due to be indelibly altered by its proposed path, and we’d like to hear what the impact will be for you.

Campaigners in the north have this week accused HS2 of a bias towards the south after it was revealed that only 2% of the Yorkshire line is to be built in tunnels, compared with nearly 30% of its track from London to Birmingham.

A HS2 spokesperson talked up the economic benefits for the region after criticism from residents, and added: we are committed to working with communities and stakeholders to identify appropriate solutions to further reduce impacts.

Proposed HS2 route as of July 2017.

Wherever you live or work along the planned route, and however you or your business or community will be affected in the coming weeks, months and even years, you can get in touch below. You can also share photographs that help tell your story.
