Bucks HS2 station plans shelved
'NAIVE' proposals for an HS2 station in Bucks have been withdrawn from a mitigation blueprint put forward by council chiefs.
A first draft of the blueprint - setting out what councillors are demanding to mitigate the worst aspects of the project if it goes ahead - at one stage included plans for a station near Aylesbury.
The blueprint was handed in to the government this week - but Chiltern District Council heard at the authority's full council meeting on Wednesday it does not include the station proposals, which have now been dropped.
Cllr Seb Berry said: "It was a naive and politically quite damaging proposal. How on earth did it emerge in the first place and ended as being talked up by the county council?"
Cllr Nick Rose said: "The station has been deleted - my understanding is it's been completely dropped."
