The public consultation on the government’s proposals for compensation for property owners affected by HS2 is now open until 31 January.

The main document is available here, and you can also see a video explaining the government’s proposals here. For a more critical view, please read the HS2 Action Alliance response here.

You can respond to the consultation:

  • Directly online here
  • By printing off and completing the official response form which can be found here
  • By email to
  • By using the postcards which will be distributed at the public meeting, or given to you at home

Using the official response form

Copies of the government’s proposals and of the response form will also be available at the meetings on 13th and 15th January, as well as advice from your local action groups about how to respond.

Responding by postcard

The prepaid postcards enable you to respond quickly and easily, especially if you are not able to fill in the official form.  The statements on the card represent key responses to each of the seven consultation questions which your action groups recommend you endorse by ticking the ‘yes’ boxes.


Every 18+ individual in a household can respond – but each individual can only respond once – so if you have say 3 people in your household you might like to send in one official form and two postcards.

If possible, wait until after the meetings on 13 and 15 January before responding.  These will give you much more information.  But if you cannot attend either of these meetings, please don’t let that stop you responding.  We cannot guarantee that the government will take notice of us but if we don’t respond we can guarantee they won’t!
