The work we do
If you’re unsure about whether or not HS2 will affect your area, you can view any events and developments relevant to your region on our interactive map. Alternatively, you can explore the links below.
We carry out consultations on all our proposals so the public and other interested parties can share their views on the many different aspects of the development of HS2. Click here for details of all our live and archived consultations, with information on how to get involved.
We have established forums to make sure we listen to communities' concerns in relation to their towns, property and the environment, as well as enabling us to explain the various ways in which we are addressing these vital issues and how we can assist those in the affected areas.
We take our responsibilities to those affected by the construction and development of the new network very seriously and have a number of programmes under which owners of land and property on or around the route can receive compensation. Click to see details of the schemes currently in place.
The Government has commissioned an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as part of the hybrid bill to authorise the Phase One route. The findings of the EIA will be documented in an Environmental Statement (ES), a draft version of which has now been published. HS2 Ltd also works with a variety of stakeholders to explore the best ways of reducing or managing the effects of the project on the environment.
