A county court judgment published last week quashed restrictive covenants contained in a Crawley Borough Council letting scheme on the basis that such restrictions breached competition law (Martin Retail Group Limited v Crawley Borough Council).  The decision contains some suprises and highlights the need to take such claims seriously with relevant specialist competition law and economic advice.

This judgment as well as the wider application of competition law to land agreements will be covered in this webinar.
