The Government has introduced a range of statutory and non-statutory property compensation schemes across the three phases of the HS2 route to support people and businesses impacted by the programme. Further details on all of the schemes can be found on the gov.uk website at https://www.gov.uk/claim-compensation-if-affected-by-hs2.

The schemes were introduced following extensive public consultation and will remain in place until one year after HS2 is operational.

In addition, HS2 Ltd supports local groups through the HS2 Community & Environment Fund and the HS2 Business & Local Economy Fund. This funding aims to add benefit over and above committed mitigation and statutory compensation to support communities and local economies along the route that are demonstrably disrupted by the construction of HS2. A total of £40 million is available for projects along the HS2 Phase One route. To date £112,000 has been awarded to projects based in the Beaconsfield constituency, with further funding also awarded to projects working across multiple constituencies in Buckinghamshire.
