Whilst no specific assessment of the effect of HS2 on the economy of Broxtowe has taken place, I am aware that the East Midlands HS2 Growth Strategy, published by East Midlands Councils, reports that HS2 has the potential to deliver an additional 74,000 jobs and £4bn of Gross Value Added to East Midlands region by 2043.
