Compulsive viewing for compulsory purchase

A reminder that this Friday will see the next online seminar in our #RuBrief series.  We are covering compulsory purchase in the form of an update for practitioners with some knowledge of the topic.  After a quick reprise of the overall structure of compulsory purchase we shall focus on some of the latest developments, in particular:

  • The detailed changes now enacted through the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 and the Housing and Planning Act 2016.  These include:
  • Important new provisions on notices of entry
  • The ability to serve a counter-notice to a notice of entry – this could be invaluable to the property-owner concerned about the continuing security of property awaiting occupation by the acquiring authority
  • A re-coding of the No Scheme Principle.  This consigns several important cases in recent years to history
  • Important changes to compensation where property is held under a 1954 Act business tenancy.  RIP the Upper Tribunal Lands Chamber decision in Bishopsgate Space Management – or is it?  It all depends when ….
  • The updated Crichel Down Rules guidance from central government
  • New forms and guidance on claims
  • The emergence of new protocols for Lands Chamber references
  • HS2’s guidance on Alternative Dispute Resolution and the scope for wider use of ADR when problems arise

For more details follows this link to find out more about our #RuBrief series in general, or this link to go direct to the booking form.

If you are actively involved in compulsory purchase I would also welcome your participation in a continuing survey which can be found at this link.  Initial results were presented at the RICS National Rural Conference in Cirencester last month.  They can be seen on slideshare and below:
