A spokesman for the anti-HS2 group that was successful in its High Court case over the compensation consultation suggested that the Government should issue property bonds:
The Department for Transport today said that a previous pledge to provide "generous" HS2 compensation still stands.
A DfT spokesman said: "The Government's commitment to being generous has not changed. We want to provide generous compensation."
A lawyer from the firm who represented High Speed 2 Action Alliance (HS2AA) - who won a case against the government today - expressed delight over the victory on the compensation challenge.
Rail Minister Simon Burns hailed the four out of five cases won at the High Court as a "landmark victory"and said the loss on the compensation case would "not affect the HS2 construction timetable in any way".
The High Court ruled that the consultation process for compensating those affected by the HS2 high-speed rail scheme "was so unfair as to be unlawful".
The decision was a victory for the High Speed 2 Action Alliance (HS2AA), which consists of more than 70 affiliated action groups and residents' associations.
The HS2AA case was one of five separate cases brought to block the rail scheme in its current form - it was the only case to succeed.
Mr Justice Ouseley, sitting at London's High Court, is now hearing submissions from lawyers on the appropriate remedy.
Government consultations on compensating those affected by the proposed HS2 high-speed rail scheme were today ruled "unlawful" by the High Court, lawyers Leigh Day said.
Joe Rukin from Stop HS2 told ITV News Central that he remains optimistic about the outcome of today's review.
The High Court is expected to give its ruling on a number of legal challenges to the government's plans for HS2 later today.
Opponents of the high speed rail plans are asking a judge in London to declare the multi-billion pound project legally flawed and to reconsider the plans.
The first phase of HS2 would see a high-speed railway line running from London to Birmingham.
If successful, the legal challenge could potentially delay the scheme for years.
The High Court is to rule today on legal challenges to the Government's HS2 high-speed rail scheme.
