Description

A series of five booklets which explain, in simple terms, how the compulsory purchase system works.

If you think you may be affected by compulsory purchase you should read this booklet.

Booklet 1 provides an overview of the system

The titles of booklets 2, 3 and 4 are self-explanatory and you need only read the ones which deal with the type of property you own or occupy. These booklets explain your rights to compensation and how it should be assessed.

Booklet 5 deals with the limited circumstances in which an acquiring authority may undertake works to reduce or "mitigate" the adverse effects of its development.
