DAC Beachcroft Webinar: Using compulsory purchasing powers and the planning system to deliver regeneration and income




12:00PM – 1:00PM

Local Authorities are making greater use of CPO powers to deliver services, facilitate regeneration projects, control land and secure income streams. The Government is actively encouraging the use of these powers and has introduced reforms to speed up the process. Securing these powers in this market is an attractive way of facilitating regeneration. The talk will consider:

• Developing and funding housing/mixed use regeneration projects;
• Why use CPO powers to secure control of town centres and/or other land to facilitate housing/mixed use regeneration projects;
• How to use CPO powers – an explanation of the process and what needs to be done to secure and implement a CPO
• Funding options for delivering CPOs and associated projects including securing loans from the PWLB and other funders as well as loans or contributions from developers.

Speakers will be:

Christopher Stanwell – Head of Planning at DAC Beachcroft
Virginia Blackman – National Head of Site Assembly & Compulsory Purchase at Avison Young
Kim Grieveson - Director in Planning, Development and Regeneration at Avison Young
