Abstract

Reports the case of R v. Northumbrian Water Ltd ex parte Able Uk Ltd which highlights the issues of withdrawal of notice to treat after possession of land has been taken and whether an advance payment of compensation should be repaid. Suggests that the state of the law raises questions about the compulsory purchase powers of privatized companies, and the rights of owners, in relation to the Land Compensation Acts of 1961 and 1973 as amended.
