Our role involved the provision of land referencing, land assembly, CPO valuation and CPO advice to both the Council and developer. The scheme proposed was a mixed use development based around a community stadium for a relocation of Brentford Football Club, with associated retail and residential units. Ardent provided a comprehensive land assembly service to the Council. Ardent provided key property advice to ensure the order was promoted efficiently and opportunities to secure deals were taken swiftly. Ardent established a specific project team with relevant experience to lead the land assembly work stream and provided an expert at public inquiry.

Following the confirmation of the Order, Ardent implemented the powers and acquired land through the General Vesting Declaration (GVD) process. Ongoing work involves an expert witness role for Colin Cottage at Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) in relation to the final outstanding claim.
