Compulsory Purchase and Compensation

International Summit: Delivering Land Assembly - UK Dilemmas, Global Solutions

Every country has unique challenges in the modern world. The successful delivery of housing, modern services and infrastructure, regenerating city and town centres, as well as business communities, all are common ambitions and in every case, the acquisition of land and rights are the vital ingredients. Each country and each scheme also has a unique set of dilemmas with the potential to frustrate and disable and whilst no one country has the magic ingredients to overcome such obstacles, we can learn and potentially find solutions from the global market place. The key is to understand what solutions work in different jurisdictions and then consider whether the solutions can be readily applied elsewhere. This is how best practice evolves and matures and this event will focus on this worldwide. It will unquestionably be of value for practitioners wherever they might be based.

CPO Valuation Seminar and Workshops

Valuing land and property for compulsory purchase compensation is a step into a hypothetical world: where land is taken, where some land is taken, and no land taken. It has own language and terms: severance and injurious affection - with potential for ransom, and planning assumptions. Its own set of case law, dictating what valuers are to do. Plus, increasing expectations on valuers to get their valuation right first time. This programme provides a thorough review of the valuation best practice and the underlying methodologies in respect of compulsory purchase and its compensation.

Warrington (2 April), Solihull (29 April), London (19 May).
