About The Law of Compulsory Purchase

Being spread across several statutes of varying antiquity and many judicial decisions, compulsory purchase and compensation law can appear daunting. This authoritative book is your single accessible volume to this complex and wide-ranging area of the law.

It provides a summarised statement of the law and contains full cross-referencing to the relevant cases, statutory provisions and policy circulars. It also includes a full explanation of the scope of powers to acquire land compulsorily and the exercise of the powers and principles of compensation.

The practical structure and style ensures that the relevant statutory provisions and cases to the matters in issue are easy to find. It both simplifies what can be simplified and explains with clarity the difficult areas.

This book should be on the desk of every practitioner who has to advise upon this branch of law and every advocate who has to present a case in which it arises.
