Fladgate LLP has acted on behalf of Micuber Estates Limited in relation to a development agreement for lease with the newly set up National College for Digital Skills in Tottenham Hale. The agreement is conditional upon planning permission being obtained not only for the new college but also for a very large residential development on the retained land.
The Fladgate team, which was led by real estate partner Antonia Brandes, prepared a facilitation agreement to provide for the development managers, Berkeley Square Developments Limited, to be instructed by both parties in the applications for planning permission for the college and residential developments. The team also negotiated a neighbourly agreement to regulate the simultaneous development of the college and residential sites and advised on the acquisition of land from the local authority to add to the site.
National Colleges for Digital Skills are centres of high-tech training that will ensure the UK has skilled people in industries crucial to economic growth, including high speed rail, nuclear, onshore oil and gas, digital skills and the creative industries.
Commenting on the transaction, Jonathan Carkeet of Berkeley Square Development Limited, said “This was a very complex development; we would never have got there without Antonia and her team”.
Antonia was assisted by construction associate Hollie Docherty and trainee Michelle Waknine.
