compulsory purchase is a major tool in land assembly and is used to deliver major and high profile projects, but it can and is used for dealing with ransom land, securing empty, disused or dilapidated property, delivering a road, releasing land for urban development through the introduction of infrastructure et al.
It should therefore sit squarely within the toolkit for planners and planning authorities to stimulate and enable the delivery of local planning objectives. But compulsory purchase is recognised as one of the more complex areas of practice and is strewn with pitfalls for those not familiar with its nuances.
- Local Planning authorities should be seeking to send representatives from their estates, planning legal and regeneration teams.
- Private practice, who are apt at doing deals, providing professional support for promoters and claimants alike, whether as surveyor, negotiator, planner, accountant or lawyer.
SESSION 2 - WEDNESDAY 21 OCTOBER
