Have you been contacted by Blacktown City Council seeking to compulsorily acquire part or all of your land?

David Newhouse of Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors has over 25 years of experience in land acquisition matters and is representing a large number of clients affected by land acquisitions in the Blacktown Council area. Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors are one of Sydney’s leading law firms for land acquisitions under the Land Acquisitions (Just Terms Compensation) Act.

Current and previous projects in the Blacktown City Council Area include:

  • Riverstone Town Centre
  • Blacktown Health and Education Precinct

Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors represented the majority of owners affected by the Quakers Road upgrade, developing specific strategies for each owner to maximise their compensation claims. We also represent a large number of owners affected by the proposed Blacktown Health and Education Precinct.


If your property is affected, you should seek advice from our highly skilled acquisition lawyers who will facilitate obtaining valuation reports and negotiating with Council to ensure that you receive the correct amount of compensation and understand the future implications of Council’s project on your property.


David is a non-practicing valuer, former barrister in numerous land acquisition matters and holds a Masters in Environmental Law. He is considered one of Sydney’s leading land acquisition lawyers. David practices in the NSW Land and Environment Court and NSW Supreme Court in relation to land acquisition, easements and other property law matters and resolves a high percentage of claims before they go to Court. Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors only act for landowners. Last year Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors settled more than 65 claims across New South Wales.
