Compulsory purchase powers will often make the difference between a development proceeding or not and in some cases are essential if land for development is to be assembled.Sectors and Services
We have extensive expertise in compulsory purchase cases acting for developers, acquiring authorities, objectors and others affected by the process.
Our experience, built up over many years, covers the use of compulsory purchase powers to acquire land or rights in land in numerous situations. Whichever procedure is relevant we have the expertise to assist, often working as part of a wider project team and once compulsory purchase powers have been obtained, we have substantial experience of acquiring the land.
We can also advise on the implications of Brexit on infrastructure planning.
