The Government recently issued their long-term property compensation and assistance schemes, which will apply to Phase 2a of High Speed Two (HS2) (from the West Midlands to Crewe).
The applicant’s eligibility for a scheme usually relies on the location of the property (with the exception of the Need to Sell scheme, which has no geographical boundary). The property will fall into one of four areas: Safeguarded Area, Rural Support Zone, Homeowner Payment Zone or Outside the Zones. For further detail on each scheme, please click here.
The discretionary schemes are largely based on those which apply to Phase 1, but with some improvements, which include:
The schemes will replace the temporary Exceptional Hardship Scheme for Phase 2a and will remain in place until 12 months after this phase first opens for public use (due to open 2027). Any pending applications under the Exceptional Hardship Scheme in respect of Phase 2a will either be suspended (if the applicant is eligible to claim for a Cash Offer or Voluntary Purchase Scheme) or will be automatically transferred to the Need to Sell Scheme.
