In October 2022 the Government invited the Law Commission to undertake a review of compulsory purchase aimed primarily at consolidating the law on compulsory purchase and compensation.

We are also bringing forward reforms in the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill to streamline and modernise the compulsory purchase process to make it more efficient for all types of compulsory purchase orders including those facilitating residential development.
