Other compulsory purchase legislation

57.The provisions in the Act simply grant compulsory purchase powers. They do not include the detailed procedures required for implementation. Implementation is governed by an existing body of law relating to the detailed procedure for any compulsory purchase (whether authorised by Act, compulsory purchase order or some other means) and the way in which compensation is determined. This law is all applied to the compulsory purchase powers conferred by the Act(17). An outline of this applied legislation is given below.


For an explanation of the reason for applying other Acts see paragraphs 15 to 17 above.
