HS2 Ltd and its contractors postponed one meeting between the months of July to December 2019 within the Chesham and Amersham constituency. This was a stakeholder meeting on 17 December 2019 to discuss the redesign of Link Road works in Great Missenden and was postponed as a result of local feedback from a number of attendees who commented that they would rather meet with HS2 individually; HS2 Ltd are in the process of arranging these.

During the same period HS2 Ltd and its contractors held over 20 community engagements within the Chesham and Amersham constituency including local drop-in sessions, individual meetings with local organisations and three information events to inform local communities about the Chalfont St Peter ventilation shaft, Wendover Dean and Small Dean viaducts, and the widening of Link Road.
