Terrible time with council tenant and shock at how law treats landlords15:32 PM, 9th January 2019

I live in a rural part of Wales and have recently been informed that an application for 150 houses has been put in for the land behind, and adjoining, my back garden. This is an elevated field with a number of the proposed properties looking directly over and into my house. The local Council (Powys) are largely in favour of this development and are supporting the application.
I have essentially assigned myself to the fact that this application will be put through, devaluing my property greatly and the access road being within 100m of my front garden. I have put my house on the market to try and get rid but obviously it is an unattractive prospect as it stands.
Is there a way to request the developer/ Council to put my property under a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)? I have found lots of information about how to object and appeal CPO’s but nothing on how to get a property included and accept it.
The Council have said the application does not currently have a CPO provision but I believe that mine and two other properties (who are also looking to move) should be included and that the lack of provision is a money saving exercise at the cost of the local residence.
Any hep or information would be greatly appreciated,
