Detail

This document was published as an outcome of the HS2 Phase Two exceptional hardship scheme consultation which launched in January 2013.

The exceptional hardship scheme has been designed to assist owner-occupiers of residential, agricultural, and small business property before the Phase Two route itself is firmed up. It is a temporary scheme to help people whose properties are affected by the plans for the line, and are experiencing (or are at risk of experiencing) exceptional hardship because they can not sell them.
