Last week, we posted the first in our series on the compulsory purchase regime in England. The aim of the series is to provide a user friendly explanation of the various elements of the process to give a listener a good understanding of the basics of compulsory purchase law.

In the first episode, we explained what compulsory purchase is and discussed the different types of compulsory purchase powers. In the second episode, Annika Holden, a Senior Associate in our London Planning Team, discusses how a CPO is justified. The second episode is available on SoundCloud, iTunes and Spotify.

In future episodes we will cover preparing and making a CPO, consideration of a CPO, implementing a CPO, and compensation. If you have any questions on this series or any other aspect of the compulsory purchase regime in England, please get in touch.
