CPA National Conference 2016

Improving the Law: Improving Delivery: Creating Change
Thursday 30th June 2015
Registration 9.30; Start 10.00; Close 17.15

Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LS

5 Hours CPD - This event is in the process of being registered for Bar Standards CPD of 5 hrs

The CPA National Conference seeks to brief members and other delegates on key issues and topics within the sector, providing valuable CPD for all those engaged in CPO and land compensation work.

2016 is another year where major schemes dominate the CPO headlines. HS2's progress through Parliament continues and is about to take a significant step with the Bill moving to the House of Lords. With the Elizabeth Line nearing opening, Crossrail 2 is next on the London agenda, whilst the Northern Powerhouse means infrastructure land assembly will not be limited to the South East. Schemes such as Thames Tideway are moving to the construction stage and everywhere CPO specialists are in increasing demand.

We have to understand what is in the pipeline for us as a result of the Housing and Planning Bill and what else might be on the horizon for CPO reform.

There has never been a more urgent need to keep up to date with rapidly developing law and practice.

The CPA National Conference brings together members and non members alike. With over 250 attendees at last year’s conference, it is a major networking event in the CPO calendar and a pre-eminent programme to attract the very best in the CPO world.

If you do CPO work, then this is a must attend event; both for networking and technical knowledge.
