Guides for farmers and growers on HS2 proposed approach to handling agricultural property matters have been published. They provide a single source of information for all those affected by the new route. There will eventually be a bespoke guide for each affected farmer.
The guides comprise 3 parts:
- part 1 contains general policies and guidance on key issues, including land acquisition, land access, construction, land restoration and compensation.
- in part 2, further explanatory notes on land acquisition and temporary occupation are included.
- in part 3 is an example of the content that will be tailored to an individual farmer. The principles set out in the guide will be adhered to during the detailed design and construction of the railway.
