There is increasing pressure for high density development particularly in residential built up areas. This is coupled with the government failing to find time to put into effect the Law Commission’s recommendations for reform. The result is that developers, property owners and occupiers are thrown back on the common law in relation to the impact of rights of light.

Caroline Hutton and James Davies of Enterprise Chambers will provide pragmatic guidance on how to find your way through the minefield. They will also cover how to assess and minimise the risk of injunctions and substantial awards of damages in the light of the latest guidance from the Supreme Court.

James Davies has a broad commercial Chancery practice with particular emphasis on property, insolvency and commercial litigation. He joined Chambers in October 2011. James is a regular contributor to the Estates Gazette and is an editor of the Landlord and Tenant Factbook. He has also recently co-written a chapter in Butterworth’s Property Insolvency.

Caroline Hutton has specialised in property law and legal disputes relating to land and buildings throughout her career at the Bar. She is particularly well known in her field having appeared in many legally important cases. Caroline founded the thriving Property Bar Association. She has a particular interest in rural and commercial property and acts for individuals as well as organisations in both the public and private sectors.
