Landmark Chambers barristers advise Birmingham on Commonwealth Games CPO

John Hobson QC and Admas Habteslasie of Landmark Chambers represented Birmingham City Council on obtaining, following a public inquiry, the confirmation of the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

An inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has this month confirmed the CPO for the Games, which are to be held at Perry Barr, Birmingham from 27 July 2022 to 7 August 2022.

Landmark Chambers said the council had argued that the CPO was required to facilitate three elements: a new mixed use residential led development to serve as the residential element of the Athletes’ Village for the 2022 Commonwealth Games; significant public transport and infrastructure improvements in the Perry Barr area, including redesign of the rail station; and an ambitious post-games legacy development which will see the direct delivery of, inter alia, 2,000 new homes and 2,900 further new homes within the next 15 years.
