The Government has revealed the compensation package for those affected by the controversial HS2.
The High Speed Rail will link the Midlands to London with further plans to extend further north.
Proposals announced by the Government include:
- To buy any owner-occupied home in the 'safeguarded area' closest to the route. The Government will pay the full un-blighted value of the property along with additional compensation of 10% up to a value of £47,000.
An influential group of MPs says the DfT has failed to present 'a convincing strategic case' for HS2.
Campaigners say they hope to put plans for HS2 through the Midlands back to square one as they prepare to go to the High Court tomorrow.
Campaigners from HS2 Action Alliance are heading to London tomorrow to take on the Government at the Court of Appeal.
