HS2 Select Committee Special Report

March 2015

HS2

With the HS2 Select Committee having been paused for the upcoming general election they have published an interim special report on their recommendations based on petitions already heard.

Click here to read the full document.

Specific recommendations are:

  • That HMRC provide guidance on Capital Gains Tax exemptions available to affected landowners

  • Limited recommendations for design amendments at specific sites

  • That HS2 put forward ‘imaginative mitigation proposals that may involve locations other than adjacent the railway’

  • That entry into the Need to Sell scheme is eased, with improved assistance to applicants.

  • Specific comment was made that certain unacceptable refusals had been made

Clauses 51 & 52 of the bill (surveys of Phase 2) be accepted but with changes to the details of this.

The Committee will re-sit in June (subject to the results of the election) and will sit through into 2016.
