Compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) can be a very complex area so it is imperative that you provide specialist advice to your clients who might be affected by a compulsory purchase. Anecdotal evidence in the market also suggests that there is currently a lack of surveyors with expertise in compulsory purchase processes and procedures. With the arrival of HS2 and Crossrail, the Government’s plan to boost infrastructure and several regeneration projects across the UK, the demand for expert CPO surveyors will continue to increase.
Introduction to CPO Powers and Process Roadshow comes back in 2018 to guide you through the different stages of the CPO procedures.
Keep up to speed with the latest changes in the legislative arena and avoid any legal pitfalls by hearing the latest case law updates and what the recent changes in legislation could mean for you if you are advising on any compulsory purchase-related work.
Listen to a series of case studies focusing on CPOs on the HS2 route. This will also be your opportunity to ask any questions you may have specifically relating to HS2 or any local infrastructure projects in each region.
Don’t miss the opportunity to receive up to date guidance, network with your colleagues, share best practice and take away key lessons learned.
Why and how to use CPOs
As a surveyor, what preliminary actions do you need to take if your client is affected by a compulsory purchase or you are acting on behalf of the acquiring authority? This session will explain further and will look at how and why properties and land can be acquired under the compulsory purchase regime and who has the powers to initiate this process.
Choosing the right compulsory purchase power
There are several enabling powers that allow the acquiring body the right to buy land and making a compelling case in the public interest is a crucial factor in deciding whether a compulsory purchase order will be confirmed or not. Our speaker talks you through the different steps from choosing the right power to making the order.
It is not uncommon for someone to object to a compulsory purchase order. Find out what to do in such instances; from public inquiries through to implementing the CPO and compensation considerations.
