FTB Annual Compulsory Purchase and Compensation Seminar

Compulsory purchase and compensation continue to give rise to interesting issues and stimulating debate.  Litigation in the last year, in both the courts and the Tribunal, has produced decisions which should be noted although many issues remain unclear.  Compensation issues are likely to continue to arise as a result of the recently confirmed CPOs and for HS2.

Our 2019 seminar will concentrate on topical subjects with focused sessions in one afternoon - ideal for busy practitioners.  The seminar should be of benefit to all those working in this field, including acquiring authority officers, solicitors, surveyors, planners, accountants and developers. 

The seminar will be chaired by Richard Glover QC.  

By booking three delegates at the same time, you will automatically be entitled to a special rate of three delegates for the price of two. Payment can be made online at the time of booking, or later by invoice, but must be received prior to the event.
