The Housing and Planning Act 2016 and Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 contain a package of measures to make the compulsory purchase system clearer, fairer and faster for all. These important reforms are being implemented on a staged basis: on 22 September we commenced a number of provisions in the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017, and the Government will now take forward work on the outstanding measures.
