This years’ conference theme will focus on impacts.  

  • The CPA introduces its reform agenda entitled Affected Parties. It’s a major piece of work that is split into two parts – the initial work looks at the impact of CPOs on people caught up in the compulsory purchase process, and part of the day will look at the issues. Later in the year the focus will shift to examining the processes and the reforms necessary to create a step change for those affected under the banner of the compelling public benefit.
  • There will be updates on legislative and best practice reforms around the UK,
  • We will look at a CPO in action with a case study.
  • The drive to Net Zero is a significant challenge and will create a huge burden for the energy companies and the infrastructure they use to deliver changes in consumption habits.
  • And we shall provide a case law review of important and recent decisions from the Tribunal.
