Under the Public Works Act 1981 (and other legislation), central and local government agencies have “draconian” powers to acquire or interfere with private land. The Act sets out processes for acquisition and compensation and is intended to provide a fair and equitable outcome for property owners. But how is it operating in practice?
This intensive will cover the steps from pre-acquisition through compensation to offer-back, and the various aspects in between, with reference to key sections, recent cases and issues.
