The land and property cost estimate, that will form part of the estimate of expense, is currently being prepared as part of the HS2 Phase One hybrid Bill documentation. It will seek to include appropriate allowances for all the properties affected by the scheme. It will be published when the hybrid Bill is deposited in Parliament later this year.
