UK Land Compulsory Purchase Order Documentation

As an Interconnector Licence holder, Greenlink Interconnector Limited commenced  a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) process in January 2020 with consultation running from 15 January 2020 until 7 February 2020. The aim of the CPO process is to ensure that infrastructure projects such as Greenlink can proceed confident that all land rights required to deliver the project are held by the developer so that the project can be delivered in a timely and cost effective manner. A public inquiry is scheduled for 20 and 21 October 2020

Greenlink Interconnector Limited is committed to achieving voluntary agreements for all land interests relating to the project.
