7:30pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
MP Fiona Bruce says she is ‘relieved’ HS2 will not affect her constituents in Holmes Chapel, Goostrey and Cranage.
“I am relieved that my strong fight on behalf of my constituents to ensure that the line of the route did not impact on any part of the Congleton Constituency has been successful and know it will be a great relief to very many of the residents I represent,” she said.
“My constituents have endured 18 months of uncertainty with rumours circulating that the line would go right through strong and stable communities in the heart of the Congleton Constituency and affect prime agricultural land.
"The uncertainty has caused problems for homeowners and farmers in the Congleton Constituency which as a result of today’s announcement will now hopefully end.”
