As many of you will know our farm is on the proposed route for High Speed Rail. This would mean the destruction of our businesses, the greenbelt farm land and countless rare wildlife in our woodland.
Our MP has proposed a reroute that follows the existing railway line rather than building a 60ft high viaduct through the Aire Valley. This alternative route also has the support of Leeds City Council.
HS2 are consulting on the route and we need your help in promoting an alternative route.
There are consultation events taking place in Leeds from Friday 18th Oct.
If you can drop in to one and make clear that you think the route should avoid Swillington and instead follow the council and MP’s alternative please do.
The more people who raise the issue the more chance we have of being listened to by government.
Details of the events are on the HS2 website here:
