HS2 Compensations Schemes

In February 2017 Royal Assent was granted for Phase 1 of HS2, thus giving HS2 Limited the necessary compulsory purchase powers to deliver the route.As a result notices will be served on affected land owners.If you fall into this category you will be entitled to claim compensation under a number of heads of claim and in accordance with the Compensation Code.

With regard to Phase 2, whilst the preferred route has been published, it has yet to be finalised.As a consequence HS2 Limited has introduced a number of discretionary compensation schemes.

A summary of the compensation schemes are set out below.More details of each scheme can be provided by clicking each link:

Phase 1

Phase 2a / 2b

Post Completion of HS2

You may be entitled to claim compensation if the value of your property is negatively affected as a direct result of the operation of HS2.This is a claim referred to as a Part 1 Claim, under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973.However this may only be claimed 12 months after completion of the route.
