This Act provides generally with respect to compulsory purchase procedure in the United Kingdom. In particular the Act deals with the rights of appeal, and the consequent procedures. The Act applies in all compulsory purchase cases. Where an objection to a compulsory purchase order is made by an owner, lessee or occupier and is not withdrawn, then, unless satisfied that the objection is exclusively related to compensation, the confirming authority must use the written representation procedure or arrange for either a public inquiry or a hearing before an inspector appointed by the Minister.The authorisation of a compulsory purchase shall be conferred by an order (in this Act called a “compulsory purchase order”). A compulsory purchase order authorising a compulsory purchase by an authority other than a Minister shall be made by that authority and submitted to and confirmed by the confirming authority in accordance with Part II of this Act. A compulsory purchase order authorising a compulsory purchase by a Minister shall be made by the Minister in accordance with Schedule 1 to this Act.

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
