Rights of Light Claim Progress - Bernard Morgan House

Report of the City Surveyor.


The Sub-Committee had before them the report of the City Surveyor on progress on the Rights of Light Claim, Bernard Morgan House.


Members were asked to note that the CoL’s rights to light compensation will be finalised under the powers within the scheme of delegations to officers.


Discussion turned to the restriction prohibiting the CoL from claiming or acting on behalf of tenants on the loss of light claims and, in response to a question from a Member, the City Surveyor confirmed that tenants had not been informed of this and that the intention was to advise ward members accordingly. The City Surveyor undertook to liaise with the Director of Community and Children’s Services on the communication issue. The Chairman asked that this matter be added to the outstanding actions report for resolution by the next meeting (P02/2019).
