Could the £45 million HS2 government fund help you or your business?
It’s great news to find out that the government has pledged a £45 million fund to help communities, businesses and the environment, who are being disrupted or impacted by the HS2 route. The grant is being distributed to a range of local communities and are helping schools, churches and environmental committees.
According to gov.uk ‘HS2 Minister Nusrat Ghani announced on the 25 January 2018 that a Northamptonshire pre-school, a 900 year-old Warwickshire church and an environmental awareness charity in London are amongst the first recipients of the fund. The fund will also be spent on public projects such as the refurbishment of community centres, nature conservation, woodland hubs and measures to support local economies and employment’.
It looks like HS2 Minister Nusrat Ghani is committed to delivering promises on supporting and growing local communities along the HS2 route.
The fund is also set to create more jobs in the built environment due to several building renovation projects.
