Getting to grips with compulsory purchase reform

26 Oct



The Faculty is supporting attempts to point the best way forward for reform of the law on compulsory purchase.

Events next week in Aberdeen and Edinburgh are intended to assist the Scottish Law Commission which is reviewing compulsory purchase law and practice, believing that current legislation is largely out of date and not fit for purpose.

The Scottish Compulsory Purchase Association is staging the free events, and the Faculty is among a number of groups supporting them. The first, hosted by Burness Paull in Aberdeen, is on Tuesday, 3 November, and the second will be hosted by Brodies in Edinburgh the following day.
