Here is step-by-step guidance through the various stages of a compulsory purchase. Aimed at practitioners advising the acquiring authorities and those advising landowners, Boynton's Guide to Compulsory Purchase and Compensation contains practical explanation of the rules for compensation and is completely up-to-date with the law and practice.

In this latest edition, account is taken of key developments in this area and many new chapters dealing with issues of central importance are provided, such as:-

  • the far-reaching consequences of the Planning and Compensation Act 1991
  • the use of the public inquiry system to seek authorisation for the construction and use of major infrastructure projects, as introduced by the Transport and Works Act 1992
  • compensation when permission is granted for additional development after acquisition
  • the increase in the number of cases in which interest is payable on compensation
  • the Urban Regeneration Agency set up pursuant to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993
  • Also taken into account is the large amount of case law which has built up in this area.
