local authority acquisition and disposal of land - hear from our experts

24 July 2019

Ongoing austerity requires authorities to 'sweat their assets' and land holdings are a significant focus for the generation of revenue and capital. 

In this webinar, Richard Barlow, Zo Hoida and Neil Walker cover commercial and public law considerations in relation to:

  • Powers to acquire land
  • Powers to invest through land acquisition including investment purchases
  • Potential barriers to disposal
  • Planning permission
  • Powers to dispose of land
  • Pre-conditions relating to disposal of land
  • A capital receipt or a revenue stream
  • Development vehicles and options
  • Who do you need to be able to satisfy as to the legality of land transactions.
