TheÂ Law of Compulsory Land AcquisitionÂ Second Edition by Marcus Jacobs QC is the most comprehensive text on the subject of land resumption in Australia. This timely new edition considers a range of issues that may arise in a land resumption matter and contains extracts from the eight principal State and Territory Acts as well as Commonwealth legislation. Modern planning pressures are once again placing compulsory land acquisition matters at the centre of public debate in every State and Territory, as governments grapple with a challenging future for Australian cities and infrastructure. As work progresses on a wide range of critical projects in our cities and regions, it is an invaluable tool for barristers, solicitors, courts and tribunals, industry, government offices and valuers. An abundance of legislation content captures the growth of statutory law in the area and extensive legislation extracts are supplemented with in-depth commentary and case law. With its origins in the highly respectedÂ Law of Resumption and Compensation in AustraliaÂ (1998), the Second Edition of this reworked title has been comprehensively updated by Australiaâ€™s leading land resumption author. Â TheÂ Law of Compulsory Land AcquisitionÂ Second Edition is an essential guide for anyone involved in land acquisition matters.
