Click here for Compulsory Purchase

In 2010 the Government announced its intention to deliver High Speed 2 (HS2), a new high speed rail line which when constructed will link London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester.  It is intended that the line will be operational by 2033.

HS2 is a unique and controversial project which will see the acquisition of large tracts of land and property.  As a consequence, HS2 will be delivered via its own Acts of Parliament which will include appropriate compulsory purchase powers.

Roger Hannah & Co has a dedicated team specialising in compulsory purchase matters and who specifically act for claimants affected by HS2.  We therefore have no conflicts of interest and can provide unbiased and comprehensive advice to ensure clients receive the maximum compensation.
