What is a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)?

A Local Authority or the National Roads Authority can decide to acquire land for the purpose of building new roads or similar projects.  If such a project is to go ahead, a CPO notice must be served on the owners of the land concerned.  This allows:

such projects to go ahead
for compensation to be paid to the land owner for having their land compulsorily removed or acquired.

When you are served with a CPO notice it can feel like an attack on your property and can be a source of worry.  It is important to engage in the process at an early stage and at John A. Sinnott & Co. Solicitors, we can give you clear, professional advice in relation to all aspects of the process, including:

Interpretation of the legislation
Communicating with valuers
Communicating with the Local Authority or NRA
Dealing with arbitration where it arises
