Scoping and Methodology consultation
The deadline for responses to this consultation has now passed.
This consultation has now closed.
Establishing the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a fundamental component of the HS2 EIA process.
The EIA Scope and Methodology Report establishes the proposed approaches that will be taken during the EIA of HS2 from London to the West Midlands. The scope and methodology defines the environmental topics that will be assessed as part of the EIA, the methods that will be used, and the geographic and temporal scope of the EIA.
The EIA Scope and Methodology is an important, but technical, part of the Environmental Impact Assessment process and we are committed to ensuring that our approaches meet the appropriate and necessary requirements for a comprehensive EIA. The scope and methodology will continue to be refined where we discover or receive new evidence.
