Neither the Department, nor HS2 Ltd, anticipate that the local government reorganisation in Buckinghamshire will have any significant impact on the efficiency of (i) local community protection by Buckinghamshire local authorities, in relation to HS2, or (ii) interaction between those authorities and HS2 Ltd.

The Department and HS2 Ltd work closely with all Buckinghamshire local authorities and have regular meetings at all levels. As the detail emerges of how the local structures and ways of working are likely to change, these discussions will continue as necessary to maintain smooth interactions.
