It has come to my notice that Warwick District Council, as part of the ‘51M’group opposing HS2, having already budgeted £100,000 of council taxpayers’ money, now requires a further £19,000 due to the length of the (unsuccessful) court hearing and it could have to find another £20,000 as its share of paying the government’s costs of defending 51M’s unsuccessful challenges in the High Court. It is also likely that further costs could arise if the group continue to attempt to challenge the project.
