Out of the difficult box and into the toolbox: get the basics on unlocking site delivery with a flexible and efficient approach to compulsory purchase

The Government is encouraging local authorities and other empowered bodies to make greater use of their compulsory purchase powers to unlock housing and regeneration. Significant law reforms since 2012 have helped make it fairer, faster and clearer. 

Join us for a webinar where we will talk you through the basics of compulsory purchase (CPO) and show you why it should be in your regeneration toolbox whether you are a public authority or a private developer partner.

The webinar will be hosted by Nick Taylor, our Head of Planning.

Paul Astbury, Head of Regeneration, will cover:

  • Where CPO can help
  • Basic CPO process
  • Working with public sector partners
  • What you need to do

Selina Wakeham, Partner in the Compulsory Purchase team, will cover:

  • Basic compensation principles
  • Compensation other than land value
  • Development value and ransom
  • Timing of payments
