Case Name: Hostsoho Limited v David Jackson (VO)  UKUT 0166 (LC) (17 June 2019)
Topic: MCC – effect of redevelopment in the locality
Full Case: click here
Summary: This was an appeal to the Upper Tribunal (under the simplified procedure) against the VTE’s decision dismissing Hostsoho’s proposal to amend the 2010 list on the grounds that significant building work was taking place in the locality. The material day was 27 May 2016, the date of the proposal, when demolition works were in progress at two nearby sites. The appellant’s proposal sought a 40% reduction in the RV, in place of an existing 10% allowance. The Upper Tribunal awarded a 25% reduction, having commented that the VO’s approach to the valuation exercise had failed to consider the full impact of the works at the material day.
