Two breach of Enforcement Notice cases withdrawn
Sonn Macmillan Walker has represented different defendants in proceedings brought by the London Boroughs of Barnet and Hackney alleging breach of enforcement notices that were issued in respect of buildings in their respective boroughs.
In each case the council acceded to detailed representations and withdrew the prosecutions. In one case because of a significant defect in the description of the land on the Notice and in the other because since the enforcement notice was issued planning permission had been granted for substantially the whole of the development that was complained of.
The cases were prepared by David Sonn and in one of the cases with the assistance of Melissa Murphy of counsel.
