We are delighted to announce details for the next YCPA event.

The event will focus on The RICS CPO Professional Statement and also include a Legislation Update

RICS CPO Professional Statement and Legislation Update
In April 2017, the RICS introduced the 'Surveyors advising in respect of Compulsory Purchase and Statutory Compensation Professional Statement. Andrew Highwood, Chair, RICS CPO group and one of the authors (check the bios from Avoiding seminar) will give a talk on the purposes of the statement, the guidance therein and a selection of examples of how not to do it when appearing at tribunal. As the first piece of guidance of its kind from a Professional body, this could potentially set the tone going forward - and a working knowledge will be important for all professional disciplines.

Legislation Update and the Future
2017 has been a year of change for CPO, with the changes incorporated into the 2017 Neighbourhood Planning Act now in force (the no scheme principal and the correction of Bishopsgate). Jonathan Stott, the Managing Director of Gateley Hamer will take us through these important impacts and also consider future reforms and in particular the importance of early engagement.

Please encourage all trainees and newly qualifieds to attend.

The Young CPA is a group set up as part of the Compulsory Purchase Association to promote training and networking opportunities for junior members of the profession. Consequently the event is aimed at people who are less experienced in compulsory purchase.  The emphasis in recent years has been on providing a forum for those with less than ten years post qualification experience but this is by no means a hard and fast rule and all are welcome.

The event will qualify for 1 hour of CPD points.

The event is free to members of the Compulsory Purchase Association (Please use promotional code provided in your email).
Non-members may attend at a charge of £10 + VAT

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.
