HS2: Compensation Consultations
31 January 2013, 08:33
People in Brackley and Wendover directly affected by the new high speed rail line between London and Birmingham have until midnight to have their say on the Department for Transport's (DfT) property compensation and safeguarding proposals.
The government has said it'll buy up homes for 110% of their value within 60 metres of the route.
Meetings have been held along the route, with more than 1,000 people attending them.
People have been able to look at route maps, factsheets and the consultation documents.
Alison Munro, Chief Executive of HS2 Ltd, said:
"The new high speed rail network will help to grow the economy by providing capacity to meet the rising demand for train services and by improving connections between our major cities. But we do understand the impact it will have on people living close to the line and the Government has recently published a range of property compensation measures for consultation.
The information events we are running are an opportunity for those directly affected to come and discuss the proposals in more detail with our property teams."
