The High Speed 2 Rail project runs through the parish close to Lower Boddington, and work on it has already started. This will have an extremely disruptive effect on our parishioners for several years so the Parish Council has been building a good relationship with HS2 Ltd and will be liaising with the scheme's Contractors to mitigate disturbance as much as possible.
The Council has recently published a Parish Plan and begun its implementation.
