The article reports that farmers and land owners affected by National Grid's plans to lay a new gas pipeline across the West Midlands, England will now receive compensation as of November 2006. The new pipeline will run from Honeybourne through Wormington to Sapperton, with construction due to start in Spring 2008. Property consultant Carver Knowles presented evidence to secure a better rate for the compensation. However, it is said that no farmer welcomes the project.
