Membership Benefits

Why you should be a member of the CPA?
"The law of compulsory purchase of land is difficult to locate, complicated to decipher and elusive to apply" Lord Carnwath. More relevantly, the law and practice remain complex. The CPA provides the environment necessary to stay in touch with best practice and those that undertake such work. There are substantial member benefits at a modest cost.

Why acquiring authorities should be members of the CPA?
Do local authorities have the expertise to bring forward and deliver a CPO? The cost of failing far outweigh the costs of being a member. Being a member provides access to all the benefits of membership – particularly to networking and best practice.  
If you work for a local government we offer a corporate membership at a discount rate.
