Welcome to the community events home page

Here at East West Railway Company (EWR Co), listening to and understanding the views of people living and working in the communities East West Rail will serve is fundamental to the way this new rail connection will be designed, built and operated.


Events overview

You're invited to join us at a drop-in event near you this May, where you can find out more information about how the statutory consultation process works.

During the last series of community events in November, people told us they'd like to learn more about the Development Consent Order (DCO) process and how they could get involved. These drop-in events aim to explain what the different stages of the DCO application are and how that process works.

We’ll be explaining how and when you can get involved, so that you and your community are well informed before the launch of the first stage of statutory consultation in the summer.

These sessions are information-only events so that communities are up to speed ahead of statutory consultation and not formal consultation events. However, further details will be made available during statutory consultation which is your opportunity to provide feedback on our proposals.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you at an event in your local area and sharing more information about the DCO process.

Everyone is welcome at these events. If you have any questions at all, or any access requirements that would enable you to participate in this event then please contact us by phone: 0330 134 0067, by post: Freepost EAST WEST RAIL or by email: contact@eastwestrail.co.uk.
