In November 2016, the Government announced a "Route Refinement" which proposed that the existing "Preferred Route" of HS2 should be changed so that it would run to the east of the A42, but parallel to it, thus avoiding the need for crossing the A42, the massive embankment across Tonge and the tunnel under East Midlands Airport.
This proposed Refinement would cause a major reduction in the aural and visual impact of HS2 on the communities of Breedon and Tonge. However, the Government has launched a Public Consultation about this (together with several other route refinements) which includes Question 5 – "Do you support the proposal to realign the route in the area around East Midlands Airport?".

Breedon Parish Council urges all residents to respond in support of this Route Refinement before the closing date of 9 March 2017. There is likely to be strong objection from other areas of North West Leicestershire. Silence from this area could be taken as indicating support for the original route or lack of concern either way.
You can respond to this consultation in the following ways:
- online: you can provide your response online via the HS2 consultation website at
- response form: for copies of the response form, go to www.gov.uk/hs2 or call 020
- email: you can email your completed response form to
- post: you can post your completed response form to the following address:

The Parish Council would like to say a HUGE thank you to ALL the volunteers that came out last Saturday to complete phase three of the Breedon Brook Clearance.There was an excellent turn out of volunteers, despite the weather conditions and the team managed to complete the task by 1330pm, filling the skip with an enormous amount of rubble and other debris (courtesy of Tom Toon & Daughters)!Your continued effort and support is very much appreciated.
