The Government have accepted a villager in Turweston’s application for EHS. The individual needs to move due to ill-health.
The applicant lives about 300 metres from the proposed route: following the route re-alignment in September, the railway will be in a cutting around the edge of the village.
The next step is that the property now has to be valued at HS2 expense. A list of approved valuers will be provided. The owner chooses one valuer and HS2 the other. HS2 then appoints them. The average of the valuations used if within 10% of each other. If not a third valuation will be required.
