Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire homes, businesses and communities at risk under HS2 plan

Construction of the high-speed HS2 rail link will see 292 houses and 118 business premises demolished across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Parliament is due to consider the finalised proposals next year ahead of work beginning in the mid 2020 and the line becoming operational from 2033.
HS2 claims the line will bring thousands of jobs and billion of pounds into the local economy.
Here's how the rail link will change the landscape of your communities.

Proposals are to demolish 21 houses and eight commercial/business properties and divert seven roads permanently. The Doe Lea and Poolsbrook Flash Local Wildlife Sites would be lost.
