Compulsory Purchase:

Getting The Best Deal

Tuesday 21 November 2017 | 2pm – 4.30pm

Chesterford Research Park, Little Chesterford, Nr Saffron Walden, Essex, CB10 1XL

With a significant number of infrastructure projects either planned or underway across the country, compulsory purchase will impact more and more landowners.


Whether you are directly affected by a compulsory purchase order or you have the potential for new infrastructure on your land – be that a road, railway line, electricity pylon, BT pole or gas pipe – the value of your land could be affected and its future use restricted.

Current compulsory purchase laws allow acquiring authorities – be that Government, local authority or authorised commercial businesses – to take advantage of your legal position and, if you are not careful, overzealous acquirers will try and undercut the true value of compensation and then go on to delay payment for many years.

The CLA has gathered a team of experts to guide you through the principles of compulsory purchase, legal considerations, tax implications and the process of compensation for landowners.

The event will include presentations from CLA Chief Surveyor Andrew Shirley and Chief Taxation Advisor Louise Speke along with guidance from property consultants Bidwells and a legal perspective from Hewitsons Solicitors.

If compulsory purchase is likely to affect you then this event is a must.

Price: £20 inc. Vat.
