On Thursday 27th May, campaigners from HS2 Action Alliance group met with HS2 and the Department for Transport to discuss the Exceptional Hardship Scheme and the alternative scheme which they are proposing.
HS2 were surprised at the evidence of blight in Hughenden Valley, on the alternative route.
The meeting was described as “positive and constructive”. HS2AA have links to the agenda and the outcomes on their website.
The DfT emphasised that the quality of argument of respondees to the Exceptional Hardship Scheme carries weight.
