Details

Large scale or major public works near a property can reduce its value, making it hard to sell at market rate - this is referred to as blight.

This booklet is designed to help you understand what you can do if you believe your house is blighted by major new trunk road proposals or improvements, including:

  • how to serve a blight notice on Highways England, asking for the purchase of your property in advance of it being required for a road scheme
  • how Highways England deals with blight notices
  • how to complain or appeal
