In Woolf, one of the few reported cases relating to compensation under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973, the Lands Tribunal considered some 16 claims for compensation arising from the construction of the M11 Link Road. In all but 3 of the claims the Tribunal upheld the offers made by TfL, and it made modest increases of compensation in respect of those 3 claims.

In an earlier related case of Lall v TfL [2008] R.V.R 183, the Lands Tribunal gave guidance on the scope of section 8 of the 1973 Act, which precludes claim under Part 1 in certain circumstances where a person has previously been paid compensation relating to the compulsory purchase of part of their land arising from the same scheme.

Tim Buley appeared on behalf of Transport for London in both cases.
