I wish to make an enquiry regarding agreements which have been made between HS2 Ltd and people and organisations who have petitioned against HS2.

Firstly, can you confirm that
a) homeowners
b) businesses

Have been offered deals or assurances which have been conditional on signing confidentiality agreements and agreeing to withdraw petitions, and how many of incidences fall into each category a-c.

How many such agreements have been struck with homeowners who are:

d) Less than 120 metres from the proposed centre line of HS2.
e) Between 120 and 180 metres from the proposed centre line of HS2.
f) Between 180 and 240 metres from the proposed centre line of HS2.
g) Between 240 and 300 metres from the proposed centre line of HS2.
h) Over 300 metres from the proposed centre line of HS2.

And what is the greatest distance from the centre line of HS2 that such an agreement has been made.

Falling within the categories d-h above, how many agreements have been made which include:

i) triple glazing
j) noise insulation in roof cavities
k) offers to build extensions
l) cash

Again, with regard to categories d-h above, please state the average cash offer for each area, for each combination of i-l above.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mrs Macknight,

Your reference FOI14-1222

I refer to your letter of the 30th December 2014.

Thank you for confirming that HS2 Ltd have entered into a contractual agreement with petitioners of a mixed business/residential property.

Please provide a copy of all the information contained in the contract that you refer to. You should regard this as a request under the provisions of the EIRs. You should appreciate that a public authority cannot contract itself out of the provisions of the EIRs simply by unilaterally obliging a third party to sign a non-disclosure agreement. I recognise that you may wish to redact the limited information that identifies private individuals.

At the same time as providing this requested information, please would you provide the documented information that explains the reasoning behind HS2 Ltd’s decision to oblige 1. such a non-disclosure agreement and 2. the withdrawal of this petitions.

Secondly, I have now looked at the published “register of undertakings and assurances” that you drew to my attention. I note that none of the items listed refer to an undertaking, and none of the assurances listed are in respect of particular individuals or localities so I am not clear how this register relates to my enquiry. Perhaps you could clarify? For the assistance of all parties, I would suggest that it would be helpful if the register provided a hyperlink to the documentation for the undertakings or assurances referenced.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Rukin
