Local people have formed a Limited Company “Misbourne Environmental Protection” and with the help and support of leading UK Geologists and Hydrologists from the area they have launched Stage 1 of a High Court Judicial Review of the Environmental Agency’s approval of HS2 Ltd and Align’s actions in the Chilterns Tunnel.
For further information please visit their website. They have raised £10K initially to fund Stage 1. To progress matters further and bring a successful judicial review, they now need to raise more funds and ask for help from the local community.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The initial target of £15K towards the cost of a judicial review was successfully reached on 22 Sep 2021. They are now embarking on a ‘stretch’ target of £30K in total, to cover Stage 2 of the full judicial review, when they obtain permission to proceed. Please note, the case is open for donations until 21 Nov 2021.
