The CPA is an organisation created to bring together and channel the wealth of expertise in the subject of Compulsory Purchase and Compensation,  to promote this  important area  of work and to foster a basis for best practice. In doing so it not only provides a sounding board for change in this sphere but makes comment and provides recommendations relating to relevant Law Commission, government department and other Reports and existing /proposed Legislation. As an important adjunct it promotes training  initiatives  together  with  opportunities  for  those  in  CPO  professions  to  network  and  share experience  and  knowledge.  It is a fully independent and self funded organisation.
