Compulsory Purchase Programme Management

We work with project promoters to manage the compulsory purchase process from project inception to completion, identifying the risks and opportunities and putting this together with the experience and systems to deliver land on-time and within budget.

We are consistently impressed by aspireCP’s experience and insight, but it is their focus on practical delivery that really marks them out as industry leading

Most other compulsory purchase advisers focus on assessment of CPO compensation and negotiation of claims. Whilst aspireCP also has this transactional capability, what makes us unique is that our team has the client-side experience and skills of having delivered large-scale CPO programmes from the acquiring authorities’ perspective. Our partners have over 30 years’ experience each in client side management with first-hand experience in successfully managing the many and varied compulsory purchase risks. We work closely with clients’ teams aiming to upskill and help them act as informed clients whilst providing the practical strategic advice and support to develop an acquisition strategy, manage statutory processes, identify and mitigate risk and get the best out of the whole land acquisition supply chain.

Our competitors know the theory of CPO delivery, but aspireCP’s acquiring authority background means we have the authority of actual experience in operating the CPO management systems necessary to deliver a project, i.e. identifying and managing risks, governance, reporting, driving the right behaviours from internal stakeholders, dealing with tax, commitments, cash-flow and payments etc.

Our market-leading AFiRMS system tracks all aspects of PCE cost, risk and case management workflow. Its bespoke dashboard reporting provides our clients with real-time management information, whilst AFiRMS will also import-export data to both land referencing and stakeholder management systems on a modern web platform.
