HS2 Event Brackley 23 March

HS2 will be holding a Land and Property themed event in Brackley at the Old Fire Station on Thursday 23rd March from 1pm until 7pm.

The event will be focussed on giving residents more information about the property schemes that are available for home owners to apply for.

They will have experts from their Land and Property department present to answer any questions people may have about the schemes and how to apply for them and any eligibility criteria which may need to be met.

Invitations for this event will start to be received by residents next week, with invitations going to residents who live 1km either side of the line of route. Please feel free to share this with any of your colleagues who may be interested. This won’t be the only event they do around Land and Property and they will be looking to hold events across the C3 route.
