The CPA National Conference brings together members and non-members alike. With over 300 attendees at last year’s conference, it is the premier networking event in the CPO calendar and I’m delighted that we have a pre-eminent programme to attract the very best in the CPO world.
In this year’s conference, we'll be covering a diverse range of issues, with different sessions focusing on law, practice and market activity. The key topics, and questions we’ll be exploring, include:
- 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?
