In Phase One there have been 1,491 compensation payments made. Please note that an acquisitions case typically can have multiple payments associated with it.

HS2 Ltd does not as a matter of course ask for NDAs as default for its land and property acquisitions. For the programme as a whole, HS2 Ltd has over 400 specific confidentiality agreements but does not record/label the agreements as to whether they relate to land and property transactions or not.
