Compulsory Acquisition of Land Compensation Masterclass and Workshop (Phase 2 – Compensation)


Get in touch information is loading


Recommended CPD point allocation: 5 points (excluding WA).

Our experienced presenters will take you through the more complex principles of assessing and determining compensation payable under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967, followed by a networking lunch allowing participants to meet other attendees and our presenters. In the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to apply your skills in a series of workshops.

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.

Our presenters will explore the principles of assessing and determining compensation payable under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967, including assessing the value of land, loss of profits claims, relocation claims and disturbance costs.

The workshop component is designed to hone your skills and give you practical experience in assessing compensation under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967.

You will be provided with a hypothetical scenario based on our presenters' extensive experience with infrastructure projects, together with a number of topics for discussion during the workshop.

This workshop is designed to place participants in the role of an officer assessing a complex claim for compensation.
