Compulsory Purchase

Bell Ingram has a specialist team of Compulsory Purchase surveyors with years of experience of working within the CPO sector.

We can guide our acquiring authority clients through all stages of the CPO process, from the initial land referencing stage, to securing access for surveys, updating detailed land cost estimates, and providing representation through the inquiry process.

Once the CPO has been confirmed, our in-depth knowledge of the compulsory purchase legislation and case law ensures that we are ideally placed to promptly settle all compensation matters and secure all necessary acquisitions.

Our surveyors have acted on a wide range of CPOs for the highway, rail, local authority, utility and energy sectors as well as providing advice in respect of compulsory acquisition for nationally significant infrastructure projects.

Bell Ingram’s work with acquiring authority clients means that landowner clients can also be assured that our surveyors have a level of CPO knowledge that greatly exceeds that of most land agents.
