The NFU met virtually with HS2 on 3 December, where an update on Phase 2a was provided.
The High Speed Rail (West Midlands to Crewe) Hybrid Bill is currently in the House of Lords with Royal Assent anticipated either later this month or early in the new year.
Following the grant of Royal Assent, HS2 is organising a workshop for agents acting on Phase 2a to explain the powers and assurances under The High Speed Rail (West Midlands to Crewe) Hybrid Bill. Some of these powers and assurances will differ from Phase 1. The NFU will hold a meeting for members affected after the workshop has taken place.
