“We need to put up a united front to fight HS2”
CAMPAIGNERS whose homes could be bulldozed to make way for HS2 hope to club together and put up a “united front” against the proposals.
Residents in Bramley held a meeting last week and agreed to contact groups from across the area in the hope of creating a “louder voice”.
A petition set up by people in the village has already attracted more than 2,000 signatures but Hellaby ward councillor Jenny Andrews said they were now hoping to speak to people from other parts, such as Barnburgh, Mexborough and Aston, who would also be affected.
The online petition was set up when the route was controversially changed from Meadowhall to Sheffield city centre.
The petition – set up by Bramley resident John Haith – claims the new route will be “dangerously close to housing and other amenities”.
