When you are faced with compulsory purchase powers, it is important to seek advice at the earliest of stages to ensure disruption is minimised and compensation is maximised.
Davidson & Robertson has a team of professional staff that are familiar with the legislation, case law and procedures associated with the Compulsory Powers of Acquiring Authorities, which include: governments, road and rail authorities, and utility providers.
We have years of experience assisting clients, guiding those affected through each stage of the process; from providing initial advice at the start of the consultation on a scheme, which can include potential objections, to agreeing access for relevant site investigation works and negotiating accommodation works and compensation claims.
D&R has worked on oil, gas and water pipelines as well as road and rail projects right across Scotland including:
- The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route
- The Forth Replacement Crossing
- The Borders Railway Project in Scotland.
- The A77 Maybole Bypass
In Northern England we have been involved with one of England’s largest water pipeline schemes, which is carving its way across the Cumbrian landscape, to provide a new water supply to the West Coast of Cumbria.

“We spend a great deal of time talking to local farmers when the consultation process begins to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and that any issues are resolved as swiftly as possible.”
“We always use Davidson & Robertson as our agents and have always been delighted with both the service we received and with the results they achieved for us. D Worrall”
