5.5 Hours CPD
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.
With the provision of infrastructure and housing at the top of Government’s agenda, demand for the services of compulsory purchase and compensation practitioners continues to increase. HS2, Crossrail 2, Heathrow Terminal 5 and the garden villages/ towns programme currently grab the headlines, but across the country there are hundreds of projects that demand the skills of those with an understanding of how to implement and advise on CPOs.
At the same time the pace of CPO reform is accelerating. Following hard on the heels of the changes introduced by the Housing and Planning Act 2016, fundamental alterations to temporary possession powers and the ‘no-scheme principle’ have been introduced in the Neighbourhood Planning Bill. With a new Housing Bill also likely this year, further reform is possible.
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.

This is the scheme
Threats, key frustrations
We are not focusing on the merits of the scheme, simply the application of CPO rules into a highly contentious and politically charged environment
Key focus: the reasoning behind the 125% valuation and dropping the previous HOSS scheme would be of great interest to members and inform the debate on blight mitigation.
