This webinar forms part of our RTPI Online series and is brought to you by the North West Region.

Planning is an integral part of the Compulsory Purchase process for both authorities acquiring land and for those having their land acquired. Not only are planners involved in promoting and securing consent for schemes that require Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPO) but they are also involved in establishing the alternative forms of development that may have been suitable and these considerations often form a key element of the compensation claim.

Join us for this ‘ask an expert’ event for an introduction to the role that planners play in the CPO process. The webinar is being provided by planners and surveyors within the Compulsory Purchase Association Futures (CPAF) committee and is aimed at planners at the start of their planning and compulsory purchase careers.

Chaired by:  Ian Gilbert (RTPI) and Olivia Pemberton (CPAF)


  • Greg Dickson (Planning Director, Barton Willmore) will discuss the role that planners play both in the promotion of Compulsory Purchase Order and also objecting on behalf of affected landowners and will also explain how planning assumptions can inform compensation claim process.
  • Liz Neate (Director, Deloitte – Real Estate) will explain how the advice of planning professionals is used by valuers in compensation claims
