Inquiries

Marks & Spencer, Portsmouth & Newbury

DATE: 01 May 2008

M&S objected to Compulsory Purchase Orders affecting their town centre stores in Portsmouth and Newbury, and these CPOs went to inquiry in March and May 2007. I was instructed to advise on the evidence to be presented and on-going negotiations about how their objections might be resolved. Both objections were settled, avoiding the need to appear at inquiry. I was instructed by Duncan Field and Daniel Farrand of SJBerwin on behalf of Marks & Spencer.
