Landowners don't delay for compensation on Thornton bypass

April 2011

planning & construction news

Whilst bringing relief to many road users, the Thornton bypass is likely to affect significant numbers of farmers and landowners with property on the planned route, impacting on land and property values.

Landowners with farms and country houses between the Switch Island M57 and M58 interchange and the A565 to Crosby who will be directly affected by the road need to know their options and should seek immediate advice from experienced rural property professionals.

If their house or other assets are directly affected, or are subject to a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), they can seek market value through compensation under statutory provisions. Those homeowners who have to sell now (for example, through job relocation) will be affected as proposals such as these cause uncertainty and this will mean a property is difficult to sell.
 
Fisher German chartered surveyors intend to make representation on behalf of affected parties. Richard Baker, partner at Fisher German comments “As proposed, the scheme will affect a large number of farmers and landowners. However, we believe other owners, such as those with residential property may see significant affects on the value of their property, especially in the areas of close proximity to the scheme.”
 
Due to the construction of the road beginning in autumn 2012, the firm’s advice to property owners is to engage in the process at an early stage and not to delay when making claims.
 
Richard continues “Initial work to prepare the compulsory purchase orders has already begun and I urge landowners to keep a record or diary of everything that is going on and who they are speaking to. Seek professional advice as soon as possible as it could affect the chances of gaining the correct compensation”.
 
Fisher German chartered surveyors have extensive experience of such major transport infrastructure, having recently acted for land and property owners on the Chiltern Evergreen 3 rail project, M6 Toll, West Coast mainline improvements, A46 and A14 schemes. The firm is also currently advising a number of landowners on their options for HS2 (the high speed rail service from London to the West Midlands).
 
If you are on or near the proposed route please contact Fisher German now to register your concern, this will allow the firm to keep you up to date with the proposals, how you might be affected and the stages towards receiving compensation.
