CPA Engagement Programme
Changes to CPO Practice - Consultation on further reform of the compulsory purchase system
With DCLG publishing further consultations on CPO reform, it has been agreed that the CPA should run 2 engagement events. The first is proposed to be an expanded Reform lecture event. The second a tag on to a CPT event in Manchester.  

The Law Reform Lecture and Engagement Event - London
Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP
Adelaide House, London Bridge, London, EC4R 9HA
Thursday 21st April 2016
Revised Timings are as follows: 
16.25 Registration;16.45 Start; 18.15 Drinks; 19.30 Close

The CPA’s annual Reform lecture is being held at Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP and is covering Bishopsgate, Ramac and other contentious issues. It thus makes sense for the event to be expanded and we will review all of the matters listed below. James Pereira QC will focus on the Bishopsgate and Ramac cases.
As this is an expanded event, the timings have been revised slightly.
