This blog entry advises on options available for people whose property is affected by HS2 proposals.
The Exceptional Hardship Scheme (EHS) allows you to apply for the Government to buy your property and is currently open. It helps people who urgently need to sell their properties now and who have found that they are unable to do so because of the high speed rail proposals.
If HS2 proposals go ahead, statutory property blight provisions would apply to people whose property would need to be purchased in order to build or operate HS2. People who qualify can require the Government to bring forward that purchase.
