Compulsory Purchase

Navigating the complex area of compulsory purchase can be challenging which is why it’s good to have our highly experienced Compulsory Purchase team on your side. Our robust knowledge of property and valuation means we can offer strategic advice on all types of schemes and projects.

We work with you to create and implement strategies to help you achieve your business goals.

If you’re implementing powers, we work to accelerate your project, assist in introducing certainty and mitigate the major cost risk of delay. If you’re affected by a compulsory purchase order (CPO), we use our powerful negotiation skills to make sure you’re protected.

The majority of compulsory purchase situations play out over the long-term, and we’ll be with you throughout the process – from initial advice through to implementation and claims.

Current projects

Thames Water – Thames Tideway Tunnel

The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a major new sewer urgently needed to tackle the increasing problem of sewage pollution in to the tidal River Thames.

The project involves building a 26km sewerage tunnel, 7.2m in diameter, from Acton in the west, to Abbey Mills in the east, up to 65m below ground. The sewer will connect to the 26 most polluting Combined Sewer Overflows that currently discharge directly in to the river. We are the appointed property consultant and have been responsible for preparing and implementing the land assembly strategy. This has included site selection, public consultation, case management, expert witness at DCO Hearings, non-statutory compensation scheme development and implementation, property negotiation and acquisition support.

Grainger – Seven Sisters Regeneration Project

This project involves the redevelopment of the area above Seven Sisters Underground Station. The scheme involves the provision of 196 new homes, 15 retail units and a new market hall for Seven Sisters Market. Grainger is party to a development agreement with Haringey Council which envisages construction commencement in 2017, opening to the public in 2019.

We are appointed by Grainger to provide property advice including compulsory purchase and compensation consultancy in connection with the scheme. We are responsible for agreeing and implementing the land assembly strategy and are engaged with property owners and occupiers to secure agreement that will enable the project to proceed on time.
