Compensation measures for residents affected by the London-Birmingham HS2 high-speed rail project will go "significantly beyond statutory requirements", the Government promised.
The Government said it would buy any owner-occupied home in the "safeguarded area" - an area within 60 metres of the planned route.
As well as paying the unblighted value of the property, the Government is proposing to pay additional compensation of 10% up to the value of £47,000.
