With the provision of infrastructure and housing at the top of the Government’s agenda, demand for the services of compulsory purchase and compensation practitioners continues to increase. HS2, Crossrail 2, Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Garden Villages/ Towns programmes currently grab the headlines, but across the country there are hundreds of projects that demand the skills of those with an understanding of how to implement and advise on CPO's.
The conference has a mix of topics covering law, practice and market activity sessions; specifically looking at:
- What will the role of compulsory purchase be in meeting Housing Delivery?
- What makes for good engagement where land is to be compulsorily acquired?
- Should the compulsory purchase consent regime make a difference?
- How can compulsory purchase be used successfully to deliver regeneration and can there be unintended consequences?
The CPA National Conference brings together
members and non members alike. With over 250 attendees at last year’s
conference, it is the major networking event in the CPO calendar and a
pre-eminent programme to attract the very best in the CPO world.
