Compulsory Purchase and Compensation is the essential guide to this complex and increasingly relevant area of the law. Now in its eleventh edition, no other book presents the same level of information on the law relating to compulsory purchase and compensation in England and Wales in such an accessible way. The best-selling book on the subject, previous editions have been used by professionals and students alike in order to gain a full understanding of a key subject for any surveyor or lawyer.
The book is also especially suited to those coming to this complex subject without a specific background in the law and ideal reading for those students taking planning and built environment law modules. Surveyors in particular will find this book invaluable.
This new edition has been extensively revised and reflects the changes to the law in the Housing and Planning Act 2016 and the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017, and also recent decisions of the courts and the Upper Tribunal, all of which will be of particular interest to those working on cases related to HS2, the proposed high-speed railway line from London to Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester.
