Paul Astbury advised Hammerson and Leeds City Council on the implementation of CPO powers to secure land for a major retail development on Eastgate in Leeds city centre. Paul worked with the Council to deliver land within a tight timeframe before the expiry of CPO powers.

Advice included strategy to secure property but maintain income and avoid unnecessary extinguishment compensation, and advice regarding compensation claims involving blight and loss of rent prior to acquisition.

Paul worked closely with a small multi-disciplinary team to deliver a successful outcome within the statutory notice deadlines
