The use of CPO powers remains a key tool in assembling land for property development, regeneration and renewal; for schemes large and small. The CPO and compensation landscape has been transformed in the past decade and continues to develop new and effective practices.  

In recent years, The CPA’s Land Compensation Claims Protocol (adopted in 2018) was created and published as a benchmark standard for the conduct of land compensation claims by promoters, claimants and their advisors.

The protocol is almost two years old and the CPA are reviewing its impact and will look ahead to consider the Protocol’s role and potential changes required to continue to shape and improve the conduct of compensation cases.
