Regent’s Park Estate vs HS2 (I)

HS2 is going to wreak havoc to the Regent’s Park Estate and its community. It will destroy almost two hundred homes, most of them council homes, scattering families across the borough. It is going to close off access to Drummond Street, a parade of locally owned Indian restaurants that offer employment to hundreds of people. HS2 refuses to admit the harm it will cause or to consider compensating it. I went to the Bengali Workers Centre in Regent’s Park Estate to hear how people were feeling after parliament voted that HS2 would definitely be going ahead. That their area was definitely being destroyed.
