Compulsory Purchase

Compulsory purchase is when the government, council or a utility company has the legal right to buy or take rights over private property.

This is if it falls within a public or private construction project considered important for social and economic change. This can include airport expansion, electricity pylons and cables, housing developments and road and rail projects.
