Aylesbury Estate CPO Decision: the Secretary of State Consents to Judgment

James Pereira QC
Melissa Murphy

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has notified Southwark Council that he would consent to judgment and ask the court to quash his decision not to confirm the Compulsory Purchase Order for the remaining properties in Phase 1 of the regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate.

A Consent Order has been agreed with DCLG and has been sent to the Interested Parties for their agreement.  If the Court decides to quash the decision, then in accordance with the terms of the Order the Secretary of State will arrange a new public inquiry to decide the merits of the Compulsory Purchase Order, to be held as soon as practicable.

James Pereira QC and Melissa Murphy are acting for the Council, instructed by the Borough Solicitor.
