Arrested development? How the law can curtail real estate development webinar

This webinar has now taken place, but please complete our form if you would like to be sent a copy of the recording.

Following the success of our in-person seminar in London on 11 May, Kennedys' real estate litigation and planning teams are delighted to be repeating the session online on Monday 5 June 2023.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court made a notable addition to the list of potential legal obstacles standing in the way of real estate development in the UK. As a result of the decision in Fearne and Others v Board of Trustees of the Tate Gallery, the law of nuisance was extended to include a new category of claim: visual intrusion.

During this webinar, our speakers will provide a practical understanding of the potential impact of the recent legal developments in this area. We will be covering:

  • How worried real estate developers, investors and funders should be about the after effects of this decision.
  • How it interacts with the other tried and tested means of challenging potential development projects, such as rights to light and restrictive freehold covenants.
  • Whether there is a risk that a newly energised challenge on one or more of these grounds cast a shadow on the prospect of obtaining planning permission for the new development as well.
