EHS Consultation Extended

 I would like to inform all constituents that the Exceptional Hardship Scheme consultation regarding HS2 has been extended to 17th June 2010.
The consultation is about a voluntary purchase scheme for property owners who properties may be affected by any new high speed rail link between London and the West Midlands.
Your property does not have to be directly affected for you to take part in the consultation and I would urge as many constituents as possible to get involved
To find out more information and how to reply to the consultation please visit http://www.dft.gov.uk/consultations/open/2010-18/
I must stress that the present consultation is about the criteria for compensation for properties affected by a possible high speed rail link. A consultation on the route is due to be held later this year.
