HS2 seminar success

September 2011

rural consultancy news

A recent seminar, updating land and property owners who are likely to be affected by the proposed HS2 High Speed Rail Link, has been hailed a great success.

Speakers from Fisher German chartered surveyors, the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) and Martineau Solicitors addressed a packed room of delegates at Sulgrave Manor, Banbury on 26th September 2011.
 
The event, which was chaired by Rupert West of the CLA, explained the implications of the proposed scheme informing land and property owners on how to prepare for the future and what organisations such as the CLA are doing to lobby the HS2 project.
 
Speaking at the seminar, Fisher German’s Stephen Rutledge advised landowners about what they can do now and in the future to reduce the likely impact of HS2. This included advice on compulsory purchase, compensation, the Exceptional Hardship Scheme and potential economic opportunities.
 
Stephen highlighted two cases where Fisher German has successfully helped clients into the Exceptional Hardship Scheme, enabling them to sell their property where they otherwise may not have been able to, reiterating the importance of seeking professional advice.
 
Tim Broomhead of the CLA, also addressed the audience, updating them on the CLA’s stance and the lobbying which is ongoing on behalf of its membership. Tim has had regular meetings with HS2 and drafted the CLA’s response to the government consultation.
 
Iain Johnston, partner at Martineau Solicitors outlined the Hybrid Bill which will be used by parliament if the scheme goes ahead and explained the differences between this and the usual compulsory purchase procedure.
 
The evening generated a lot of interest and Stephen in particular was inundated with enquiries following the event.
 
Following the success of this seminar, Fisher German will be running more seminars in other regions that are likely to be affected by the HS2 link.
