Stephen Lashmar was invited by the RICS to give a seminar to members regarding compulsory purchase. Entitled “The Issues and Challenges of a CPO”, Stephen’s presentation provided an overview of the CPO process and issues associated with CPOs followed by an in-depth examination of the need for reform and the implications of the recently introduced Housing and Planning Act 2016.
Stephen, Associate Director within the CPO Team, said “it was a privilege to be asked by the RICS to provide the presentation as part of their CPD Foundation Programme. Whilst the initial content of the seminar seemed straightforward at first, recent legislation changes did alter the structure of the presentation, which was a challenge to incorporate”.
