The Welsh Government has put placemaking at the heart of the planning system in Wales. One of the placemaking in action tools local authorities in Wales have been asked to consider to help recovery from the impacts of Covid-19 is the use of their compulsory purchase powers.
To support local authorities use their compulsory purchase powers, a priority of the Welsh Government is to implement reforms to streamline and modernise the compulsory purchase process in Wales.
To achieve this, the Welsh Government has published a consultation which seeks views on proposals to:
- Modernise statutory compulsory purchase powers and procedures underpinned by primary legislation, and
- Implement technical process improvements to streamline the compulsory purchase public inquiries and written representations procedures.

It is important for those involved in compulsory purchase in Wales to be aware of and provide views on the proposed reforms. This forum event is an ideal way to get up to speed on the Welsh Government’s proposals. Andrew Ward, the Welsh Government’s Senior Policy Lead on Compulsory Purchase, will explain the key provisions of the consultation, answer questions, and be keen to hear your views.
You will also have the opportunity to hear the views of leading compulsory purchase practitioners who will present their perspectives on the reform proposals.
