The CPA was 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. It also promotes training and networking to share experience and knowledge. It is a fully independent and self funded organisation.
