Maxine Charlesworth and Stephen Redhall's house could be the subject of a compulsory purchase order if the proposed route for the High Speed rail link from London to the north goes ahead.
A family in North East Derbyshire say they are angry they have been kept in the dark about plans for the new high speed rail link, as their house is one of those which could have to be knocked down.
Maxine Charlesworth and partner Stephen Redhall live in Killamarsh, and say they have been given no information about the plans, despite the fact the proposed route could run right outside the front of their house.
Two resident meetings are being held later today in the nearby area to discuss the situation.
An MP is holding two meetings today over plans for the high speed rail project which some residents fear may blight their village. Phase two of the HS2 rail link to London from the north is expected to travel through Killamarsh ending at Sheffield Meadowhall.
This could mean some houses may have to be demolished and plans to restore the village's railway station may not go ahead.
Natascha Engel who is the MP for North East Derbyshire, wants to give residents in Killamarsh a chance to have say over the project. The consultation meetings are taking place at 1.30pm at Renishaw Community Centre and 4pm at Killamarsh Church Hall.
Residents who claim to be prisoners in their own homes since the High speed rail route was announced, are demanding the Government brings forward the consultation process.
The group from Swillington, Oulton and Woodlesford say their house prices have plummeted and sales have fallen through since the announcement was made. No formal consultation has been planned until later this year.
Now Leeds City Council is hoping to meet with the people behind HS2 to discuss the problems. Here's Councillor Richard Lewis.
Chesterfield Canal Trust says it 'welcomes' news that discussions have been taking place between HS2 Ltd. and local authorities over the route of the new line between London and Leeds, but has warned the proposals 'serve to blight' further regeneration of the waterway.
It comes after concerns were raised over the impact the line would have on the 300-year-old canal and amid claims the route was drawn up using out of date maps.
HS2 Ltd. said the route is 'the Government's initial preferred route' and it is now able to 'address concerns about specific sites'.
Members of the Trust have now requested discussions with HS2 officials before a full public consultation is launched later this year.

The Chesterfield Canal Trust very much welcomes HS2 discussions with Chesterfield Borough Council. The issues raised by the proposals for HS2, however, go well beyond the boundaries of Chesterfield Borough.
We regret that the proposals serve to blight, at one fell swoop, half a billion pounds of regeneration work associated with the Chesterfield Canal regeneration area; they devalue hundreds of thousands of hours of volunteer work put in over a thirty year period, and potentially trash years of partnership restoration planning and delivery.
There are fears that officials who drew up the HS2 route between London and Leeds may have done it on maps that are out of date.
It's been claimed a waterways project in North Derbyshire which was completed more than a year ago is missing from the HS2 route map released last month.
The group that spotted the mistake is calling for talks with the Government. Ben Erlam reports.
Officials planning the route the high speed rail line between London and Leeds have said they are 'now able to address concerns about specific sites' amid fears the route jeopardise further restoration of the Chesterfield Canal.

"The route north of Birmingham that was recently published is the Government’s initial preferred route and we are now able to address concerns about specific sites such as the Chesterfield canal in more detail with local authorities.
We have recently met with Chesterfield council and discussions will continue.
A full public consultation will also open later this year and information gathered through the consultation will help inform the decision on the final route, which will include how the line can cross existing infrastructure such as canals."
HS2 bosses have awarded their first contract to take the project into the next stage. It comes after the government announced Phase Two of the plans last month - running from Birmingham to Manchester and Leeds.
The contracts will provide engineering and environmental services for each leg of the route. This work will include developing the initial concept engineering designs and preparing sound demonstrations.
The MP for Chesterfield, Toby Perkins has dubbed the decision over where to build the high speed rail link 'amateurish'. It's after claims the maps used to choose the route were out of date.
The track, which links London to Leeds cuts across parts of Chesterfield canal.
But documents regarding the construction of the link, which were submitted to the government in March 2012, included maps which are missing nearby Staveley Basin which was built more than a year ago.
