Details

This guidance on the compulsory purchase process and the Crichel Down Rules has been revised to reflect legislative changes and case law since 2004.

The guidance is intended to make it easier for people to access the information they need to understand how the compulsory purchase system works. It replaces Circular 06/2004 ‘Compulsory purchase and the Crichel Down Rules’ and 13 other circulars and government guidance documents. It applies to England only.

The model compensation claim form is intended to streamline the process of claiming and assessing the compensation due to those who are affected by compulsory purchase. The form sets out all the information which needs to be provided in support of a claim. There are separate guidance notes to aid completion of the form.
