Impact on Agriculture

Impact on Agriculture

The proposed route crosses considerable open countryside. For every 100m of track, 1 hectare of land will be required. (1 hectare = 2.47 acres). 5,088 acres of land will be lost from London – Birmingham alone. Permanent loss of agricultural land means less food can be produced in this country.
