- the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) Practice Directions, October 2020
- the implementation of the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017
- changes in secondary legislation (including the Tribunal procedure rules)
- changes in policy and guidance (especially the guidance for Wales and the Tribunal practice directions)

It enables you to:
-find clear statements of the law and practice on all points that relate to compulsory purchase and compensation
-understand the detailed analysis necessary to grapple with tricky points encountered in practice
-access cross-references to legislation, key case law and guidance, easily

As it simplifies what can be simplified and explains with clarity any difficult areas, it is the one guide you need to help you access and assimilate all the statutes, of varying antiquity and judicial decisions, that relate to compulsory purchase and compensation.

It describes the law, practice, procedure, policy and compensation for a compulsory purchase, and provides a summarised statement of the law, complete with footnotes to enable you to access further information.

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.
