An overview of the process of making a CPO and its confirmation.

  • compelling case in the public interest;
  • Alternatives;
  • Funding the CPO (LG/third party) – resources, viability and costs; and
  • Human Rights and Public Sector Equality Duty.
  • Consultation and addressing objectors concerns (mitigating the impacts).
  • Recent changes to the process of confirming CPOs by PINS and the inquiry process.
  • Timescales and prospects of success.
