Compulsory Purchase and Compensation

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

Given that there is a global need to deliver housing, commerce, modern services and infrastructure, and to regenerate towns and cities, what can legislators and practitioners in the UK learn from how other nations deliver these things to improve best practice at home? And what could our international allies learn from the best of the UK system? We aim to explore legislation and best practice from the UK and across the globe to examine these questions in greater detail in this event, which is UK focusedand aimed at a UK audience, but with an international dimension.    

London (24 March).

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.

Telecom Law and Practice Conference 2020

The Electronic Communications Code contains powers for taking rights over land for the purposes of delivering telecommunications. It is generally muted that the code is exactly what the telecom industry wanted, and the legislation was passed with virtually no changes, despite substantial stakeholder proposed amendments. So why is it resulting in so many challenges, failures to agree; which is causing inertia in the roll out of the technology in the UK?

The CPA's Annual Law Reform Lecture 2020

The Challenging Issue of Temporary Possession of Land 

The Compulsory Purchase Association invite you to attend this evening event. Temporary Possession may not be new, but the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 sought to bring forward reform of the powers to codify the powers and giving substantial new protection to affected owners and occupiers. Brexit may have distracted, but a new strong government will now have the time and confidence to complete the reform. What are the challenges, and how might such reform balance the needs of promoters with those of owners and occupiers?
