How can we help you?
Compulsory purchase involves the acquisition or overriding of private property interests where an acquiring authority has demonstrated a compelling case in the public interest.
Many public bodies (‘acquiring authorities’) are enabled by acts of parliament to compulsorily purchase land for a particular public purpose, for example the highways authority for new roads, the local planning authority for regeneration projects.
The approvals process, acquisition process and the rules for assessing compensation are complex and guidance will be necessary through all the stages from specialist CPO surveyors. With over 50 years of combined experience working across the UK and abroad, our CPO Team has all the tools to advise you whether you are using compulsory purchase or are affected by compulsory purchase.
Our team of experts can handle acquisitions and negotiations and guide you through the statutory process. We are accustomed to working with land referencing, and legal and accountancy CPO specialists and with wider project delivery teams.
