Recommended CPD point allocation: 3 points (excluding WA).

Under the compulsory acquisition statutory framework, a constructing authority must pay compensation to the land owner and other persons with an interest in land that has been compulsorily acquired.

Assessing the compensation payable is never as simple as determining the market value of the property. There are a range of other factors that affect the proper assessment of compensation in the compulsory acquisition context.

This workshop takes the opportunity to consider in detail some of the more complex principles of assessing and determining compensation payable under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967.
