HS2 Phase One Guide for Farmers and Growers

The guide for farmers and growers set out High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd’s proposed approach to handling agricultural property matters.

HS2 Ltd recognises that good communication will assist all parties during the design and construction of HS2.

We will therefore seek regular engagement with all farmers, landowners and rural business owners on the route. We want to meet with you to discuss:

  • information about the Phase One programme and the proposed detailed design;
  • consideration of the impact on the holding and whether any of the farmer’s existing or future proposals can be allowed for in the programme of works;
  • relocation or re-provision of farm buildings and other facilities affected by HS2 (may be subject to planning);
  • detailed proposals for temporary and permanent accommodation works;
  • land restoration and aftercare; and
  • the impact on additional activities, such as fishing and sporting rights, and how best to protect them.
