To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how many properties situated less than 120 metres away from the proposed line of route for phase 2b of High Speed 2 will not be eligible for compensation because they fail to meet the criterion that at least 25 per cent of the land must be within the designated Rural Support Zone.

Any property where the dwelling is situated within the designated Rural Support Zone will meet the location eligibility criteria for this scheme. Due to the complex nature of property boundaries the Department does not hold information on the number of properties where some property, but less than 25% of the total area of the property, is within the Rural Support Zone and so don’t meet the eligibility criteria for this scheme.
