11KBW webinar on obtaining ‘best consideration’ by local authorities for the disposal of land


11/07/2023 | 10:00 am 11:00 am

You are invited to join us for a webinar on 11 July 2023, 10am – 11am, to consider an important recent judgment on local authority land disposals covered by s.123 of the Local Government Act 1972.

On 5 July 2023, the High Court (Steyn J) gave judgment in R (Cilldara Group Holdings Ltd) v West Northamptonshire Council. James Goudie KC and Ben Mitchell appeared for the Council.

The case concerned the sale by the Council of a plot of land for which the Claimant had bid unsuccessfully. The Claimant’s offer had been about £1 million more for the land than the successful bidder, but nonetheless its claim that the Council had failed to obtain ‘best consideration’ by choosing the lower offer failed. The key issue was the Council’s assessment that the Claimant’s offer was not credible and reliable.

James and Ben will discuss the case and other cases, their significance and wider implications for local authorities at the webinar.
