The government has announced plans for safeguarding land along the proposed route of HS2 and also a compensation consultation. This is their announcement.

We have now had our roadshow and you can read all about it here and find a link to BBC coverage.

The consultation is here and we have some advice on how to respond here. We have freepost postcards to help you respond quickly and easily if you wish to use them – more here on how to get some.

The maps are here for that consultation, maps 13-17 cover the Hillingdon area.

The different safeguarding maps are here, maps 13-17 cover the Hillingdon area. The aim of safeguarding is to ensure that new developments along the route do not affect the government’s ability to build or operate HS2, or lead to additional costs.

Do send us any questions

Our initial reaction is here and lists the 10 things we found wrong with it already! We are sure the list will grow much longer.

We will be poring over the plans and taking advice before releasing advice on the consultation response to residents.
