HS2 – One other effect of the HS2 proposals which I have not hitherto brought to your attention – but which was brought starkly to my attention by a member of the community – relates to house values and saleability of property.
I am informed that a local resident who is having to sell up in order to pay IHT is very worried about the effects of HS2/HS1 on the market value, indeed saleability, of his house.
Another member of the community sent me this link:
and it makes very worrying reading when it is juxtapositioned against the severely damaging effects which this HS2/HS1 whim is going to cause our community.
I am working with the Heath and Hampstead Society to obtain a high level review of what is going to happen to our community by this project. But, ultimately, I need your continuing support.
