Apethorpe Hall

We advised in relation to the planning and development assumptions underlying the compulsory purchase of Apethorpe Hall, a Grade I listed Jacobean mansion. This involved establishing the extent of redevelopment and conversion to residential development that would be permitted within the curtilage of the listed building.

This advice underlay the valuation assumptions as to the amount of compensation to be paid to our clients following the compulsory purchase of the property. Evidence was prepared and given at the Lands Tribunal although in the event both English Heritage and the DCMS agreed to our client's terms of the value to be paid in compensation before the case was finally determined.
