Compulsory Purchase Orders


We provide expert advice in relation to property affected by the threat of, or actual Compulsory Purchase Orders.

We provide expert advice in relation to property affected by the threat of, or actual Compulsory Purchase Orders as well as considering all aspects of statutory blight including where appropriate the service of Blight Notices.

We recognise the importance of working closely with all of those involved in the CPO process from the start (local government, the Highways Agency, surveyors and if necessary specialist Counsel) to evaluate the proposals, quantify the potential impact on our clients (both now and in the future) to ensure that a thorough evaluation is carried out and all appropriate deadlines for submission of responses and/ or objections are identified from the outset.

Examples of our recent work include:

  • We have been advising clients affected by the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road Scheme (SEMMS) and have been working closely with local land agents to ensure our clients are compensated properly under the scheme.
  • In addition, we are currently liaising with the Highways Agency in connection with works relating to Junction 17 of the M6 in Cheshire to ensure that agricultural land in the vicinity of the works in adequately protected by any forthcoming CPO and associated works.
