CPA National Conference 2018                     

Wednesday 11 July 2018
Registration 9.15; Start 10.00; Close 17.20 Followed by a drinks reception
Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS

5 Hours 30 mins CPD

With the provision of infrastructure and housing at the top of the Government’s agenda, demand for the services of compulsory purchase and compensation practitioners continues to increase. HS2, Crossrail 2, Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Garden Villages/ Towns programmes currently grab the headlines, but across the country there are hundreds of projects that demand the skills of those with an understanding of how to implement and advise on CPO's.
The conference has a mix of topics covering law, practice and market activity sessions; specifically looking at:

  • What will the role of compulsory purchase be in meeting Housing Delivery?
  • What makes for good engagement where land is to be compulsorily acquired?
  • Should the compulsory purchase consent regime make a difference?
  • How can compulsory purchase be used successfully to deliver regeneration and can there be unintended consequences?

The Compulsory Purchase Association's National Conference seeks to brief members, non members and the professions on key issues and topics within the sector, providing valuable CPD for all those engaged in compulsory purchase and land compensation work. If you do CPO work, this is a must attend event for technical knowledge, updates and networking.
