This brief open-file report summarises the information available from the British Geological Survey (BGS), a component body of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), on the geology, hydrogeology and potential geological hazards of the proposed HS2 Route 3 within the Chesham and Amersham Constituency, and surrounding areas. The report summarises the geology and hydrogeology of the district and highlights geological and hydrogeological considerations that may need further investigation along the route. Further review and analysis of existing data and possible field investigation would be required to confirm details of the local geology. The report was requested by Mrs Cheryl Gillan MP following a meeting with Dr Martin Smith, Head of Geology & Landscapes programme, on Monday 16th May 2011 at the offices of the Secretary of State for Wales in Whitehall.
