BBC London report on HS2 compensation announcement

BBC London report (18:30 bulletin) on the launch of the new consultation on compensation from Perivale, West London on October 25th 2012. Includes an interview with Agnes Fletcher near Great Missenden, Bucks.

Note that the compensation zone runs from the centre of the track: the BBC report implies it runs from the edge.

  1. As this consultation is for phase 1 does that mean that those on the y will have to be bound by the outcome even though they have not been consulted or will they have a different scheme.
    This has all the makings of another fiasco particularly as there is no assurance that they will take any notice of it

    • @John: “As this consultation is for phase 1 does that mean that those on the y will have to be bound by the outcome even though they have not been consulted or will they have a different scheme.”

      Short answer to your query is NO

      You can see a clearly defined timeline of events here in the High Speed Rail section of the DfT website

      However, it’s likely that the prcedural practices and outcomes resulting from Phase 1 consultations (even the lessons learned from mistakes) will be carried forward into phase 2 consultations?

        • The answer to my question is in the consultation booklet i receieved this morning and is—

          Phase 2 – Leeds, Manchester and Heathrow
          The proposals set out in this consultation refer only to the London – West Midlands route (Phase 1) announced by the Secretary of State on 10 January 2012. We expect to publish an initial preferred route for the Leeds, Manchester, and Heathrow route (Phase 2) in late 2012. At the same time, we will launch a consultation on the interim compensation arrangements for property owners affected by Phase 2. These arrangements will be wholly independent of the proposals in this consultation document but will start from the same principles and build on the lessons learned from the arrangements put in place for the London – West Midlands route.

          So if I understand this the compensation for phase 2 could be the same or better or worse—how can that be fair?
