What does Compulsory Acquisition mean?

Posted in: Land Compensation Claims (Public Work)

The acquisition of private land is usually done by negotiation and agreement with the landowner.  If agreement to the taking and the compensation payable cannot be reached, the Government or Council can take your land by compulsion and build the project without delay. Compensation payable may then be decided by the Land Valuation Tribunal.
