Case Study: Successful negotiation of compensation packages for nine property owners and occupiers

Richard Farr / 19 Aug, 15

Bridlington is a small coastal town in the North East of England, best known for its beaches and harbour the town is located within the East Riding of Yorkshire County.

East Riding Council used powers of compulsory purchase to facilitate the long term regeneration of Bridlington. The Council wished to widen Hilderthorpe Road and create a new plaza at the town’s railway station in a £9m scheme.

As part of the scheme, the Council used powers of compulsory purchase to acquire properties on the north side of Hilderthorpe Road, between Springfield Avenue and Palace Avenue.

We acted for nine of the property owners/occupiers in the relocation of residences, businesses and agreement of compensation packages.

Example cases

Ocean Reward’s – 64 Hilderthorpe Road

“After years of speculation we were finally contacted by the local council to advise us that our rented property would be acquired as part of the Bridlington regeneration.

Sanderson Weatherall were recommended to us by other business owners along Hilderthorpe Road and I made contact with Richard Farr.

From the beginning to the end of the whole process we found Richard to be extremely experienced in these matters. He immediately reassured us and more importantly he asked us what we wanted and listened to our concerns and aspirations.

Throughout the whole process we found Richard to be courteous and forthright, working with our best interests in mind. We can heartily recommend anyone else in our situation to appoint Richard to act on their behalf”.
