5 Hours 30 mins CPD
With the provision of infrastructure and housing at the top of the 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 programmes 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 CPO's.
The conference has a mix of topics covering law, practice and market activity sessions; specifically looking at:
What will the role of compulsory purchase be in meeting Housing Delivery?
What makes for good engagement where land is to be compulsorily acquired?
Should the compulsory purchase consent regime make a difference?
How can compulsory purchase be used successfully to deliver regeneration and can there be unintended consequences?
The Compulsory Purchase Association's National Conference seeks to brief members, non members and the professions on key issues and topics within the sector, providing valuable CPD for all those engaged in compulsory purchase and land compensation work. If you do CPO work, this is a must attend event for technical knowledge, updates and networking.
