Are You Affected by the Compulsory Acquisition Project of Local Councils for Open Spaces?

Open spaces acquisitions have been implemented across the Sydney region to ensure urban areas are serviced with sufficient green and open spaces, with local councils spearheading these initiatives. The open spaces program aims to enhance urban living, but it can also significantly impact businesses and households. 

FM Legal’s Expertise in Open Spaces Acquisitions

We are currently acting against several councils, including Cumberland Council, Auburn Council, and Blacktown Council for homeowners. With extensive experience in compulsory acquisition projects in Sydney, Flo Mitchell leads our team with confidence, handling large-scale, complex matters. Recently, Flo successfully managed claims ranging from modest amounts to settlements up to $18 million.

How We Help

FM Legal has represented approximately 100 different clients affected by the compulsory acquisition of their property and businesses, negotiating settlements that exceed 300% of initial compensation offers. Our proven track record ensures that you receive the best possible outcome.

  • Expert Guidance: We provide practical and timely advice tailored to your specific situation.

  • High Success Rate: Our team has secured settlements significantly higher than initial offers.

  • No Upfront Costs: Often, you won't pay for our services as we recover costs from the government.

With the Auburn Council merger forming part of the Cumberland Council and other council initiatives driving these acquisitions, it’s crucial to have expert legal support.
