Compulsory purchase of land at Pickering’s Farm

Graham Eastham made this Freedom of Information request to Homes England

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Homes England,

Under the Freedom of Information Act I request that you supply me all information held on file about the compulsory purchase of the farm land now referred to by you as Pickering’s Farm Penwortham. In particular, why was the land compulsory purchased then not developed for over 43 years ? Who was it CPO’d from and for how much ? How much is the land being resold for ? Is there any vehicle of payment in place to compensate the families who had the land CPO’d all these years ago? Why was only half CPO’d ? Why isn’t the full site area now proposed for development being CPO’d ?

Yours faithfully,

Graham Eastham
