Section 122: Purpose for which compulsory acquisition may be authorised
215.This section specifies the purposes for which an order granting development consent can authorise the compulsory acquisition of land. The Panel, the Council or the Secretary of State, as the case may be, must be satisfied that the land:
is required for the development to which the development consent relates;
is required to facilitate or is incidental to that development; or
is replacement land (see sections 131 and 132),
and that there is a compelling case in the public interest for the land to be acquired compulsorily.
