1. The Secretary of State for Transport hereby gives notice that the length of highway detailed in the Schedule below was first open to public traffic on 8 August 2001. 2. Under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973 (as amended), there is a right to compensation in respect of depreciation of more than £50 in the value of certain interests in land caused by the use of new or altered highways or the use of other public works including street lighting and resulting from specified physical factors (noise, vibration, smell, fumes, smoke and artificial lighting and the discharge onto the land, in respect of which the claim is made, of any solid or liquid substance). Compensation is assessed by reference to prices current at the date 12 months after the new or altered highways are first open to public traffic after their completion. 3. Interests qualifying for compensation are specified in section 2 of the above-mentioned Act and there are special provisions relating to claims by mortgagees and persons entitled under trusts and settlements. However, no compensation can be paid under Part 1 where a part of the property has been acquired for the purpose of installing the works. 4. Any person entitled to a qualifying interest who considers they have a claim under the said provisions may obtain further information and claim forms from Susan Willis at the Highways Agency, OD Lands, Room C2, 5 Broadway, Broad Street, Birmingham B15 1BL, telephone 0121 678 8431. 5. Claims may be made on or after 8 August 2002 (the “first claim date”), which is 12 months after the date of first use. Claims should be made within 6 years from this date. However, if an interest is disposed of (insofar as the interest is in land which is not a dwelling), or a tenancy is granted the claim must be made before such disposal or grant of tenancy.
