Landmark’s barristers regularly promote large scale CPOs on behalf of the full range of public bodies in a wide range of settings. From taking the HS2 bill through Parliament; to DCOs and TWAOs for major transport projects; to large scale regeneration CPOs under planning and/or housing powers, Landmark has a significant number of QCs and juniors experienced at delivering the most complex and controversial CPOs.
Recent and ongoing examples include promoting major CPOs at Dudley Road Winson Green/Spring Hill in Birmingham, Peckham Rye Station, the Mayor of London’s first CPO at the former Southall Gasworks, the Redcar Steelworks, Calverly Square in Tunbridge Wells, Brent Cross and West Hendon, Croydon Westfield; Hounslow High Street Quarter, Wards Corner, Touchwood Solihull and the Alma Estate. Recent TWAOs include the Midland Mainline electrification, the Felixstowe Branch Line improvement and the Anglia Level Crossings.
Landmark’s barristers regularly represent statutory undertakers, commercial organisations and individuals in resisting CPOs or in seeking adequate protections/mitigations.
Barristers have been involved in many judicial review challenges brought to CPOs.
Landmark advises and represents claimants and compensating authorities in (often very large) compensation claims, for example relating to the Olympics CPOs, Crossrail and HS2. It has numerous QCs and juniors highly experienced in the statutory and procedural pitfalls and, most importantly, in expert cross-examination on highly technical and complex valuation issues both in the Property Tribunals and in arbitrations. Expertise in valuation law and practice is a core strength with members regularly advising (and lecturing) on such issues.
