Compulsory purchase is a subject that is in the conscience of the general public like never before. More column inches have discussed compulsory purchase this year than any previous year, and the term is used and searched for on Twitter more than ever. As professionals working in the fields of compulsory purchase and compensation we face exciting and challenging times. Exciting, due to the unprecedented levels of work as a result of the increasing numbers of major projects and promoters realising how useful a tool compulsory purchase can be; and challenging because we face a shortage of practitioners and a seemingly endless struggle to persuade elements of the press, lobbyists and some politicians that the system can work effectively when acquiring authorities use powers responsibly.

In this year’s conference, we’ll be covering a diverse range of issues, with different sessions focusing on law, practice and market activity. It brings together members and non-members alike, attracting over 300 delegates last year.
