The CLA calls on the Government to:
Other CLA Compulsory Purchase articles
The CLA regards the protection of its members’ interests when faced with the threat of compulsory purchase as one of its core roles.
We have been actively engaged with the Government and other key stakeholders for many years on the issue.
As long ago as the Second World War, the CLA was instrumental in securing benefits for its members with the result of the Crichel Down case. In this case the Government had attempted to keep land which it had compulsorily purchased, even after the war ended and the need for it had gone.
More recently we were heavily involved with the production of what turned out to be a very good Law Commission report on the reform of the compensation rules. Find the consultative and the final reports here – the consultative report gives useful detailed information on compensation rules.
Unfortunately the Government has yet to act on all the recommendations, and we will be lobbying the next Government to do so.
