Role of the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) (the Tribunal)

The Tribunal is a specialist chamber of the Upper Tribunal established to determine disputes concerning land in England and Wales and its valuation, and to hear appeals against decisions of certain other tribunals. Among its jurisdictions, the Tribunal determines disputes over compensation relating to the compulsory acquisition of land and the injurious affection of land; disputed compensation relating to tree preservation orders; the validity of blight and purchase notices; appeals against certificates of appropriate alternative development and other land valuation disputes where the parties have agreed to refer the matter to the Tribunal where it acts as arbitrator.

For information on compensation relating to compulsory purchase, see Practice Note: Compulsory purchase—compensation.
