Last week, we posted the second in our series on the compulsory purchase regime in England, the aim of the series being to provide a user friendly explanation of the various elements of the process to give a listener a good understanding of the basics of compulsory purchase law. In the second episode we discussed how a CPO is justified, having covered in episode one what compulsory purchase is and the different types of compulsory purchase powers. In this episode, episode three, we discuss preparing and making a CPO. This episode can be found on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud. All episodes broadcast to date can also be found here.

In future episodes we will cover consideration of a CPO, implementing a CPO and compensation.
