Using CPO powers to regenerate your high street or town centre

Gateley Hamer

Join our free daily training course,  starting at 8.45 am and finishing at 10:00 am, to ensure your local authority knows the procedure and options available.

With the outbreak of coronavirus accelerating the demise of the traditional high street, now is the time for local authorities to adopt an interventionalist approach and use compulsory purchase powers to consolidate fragmented ownerships and implement strategies that will breathe new life into towns to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits.

While some local authorities regularly use CPOs and are comfortable doing so, we know many local authorities understandably have avoided them and are unused to the process and requirements.

What will you learn?

Starting on Monday 1 June, we are offering one week of free training to local authorities via webinar. Starting at 8.45am and finishing by 10am each morning, we will take you through the compulsory purchase process from start to finish over the course of five days, going through: 

  • Pre-application 
  • Objections and examination
  • Implementation 
  • Compensation 
  • Case law update

This is an interactive course; materials will be provided in advance and we will be answering questions from attendees during each session.
