The first hearing under the new Electronic Communications Code took place yesterday before Martin Rodger QC, the Deputy Chamber President of the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).
The hearing concerned an application by CTIL for an Interim Code Agreement to install equipment onto the rooftop of a hotel in Paddington.
Wayne Clark of Falcon Chambers, instructed by Thekla Fellas of Fladgate LLP, acted on behalf of the Hotel resisting the application. CTIL was represented by Oliver Radley-Gardner, instructed by DAC Beachcroft.
No order was made at the first hearing and the matter has been adjourned to a further hearing in July.
“It was an honour to be part of the first ever hearing under the New Code. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to participate in the first hearing under a new piece of legislation. The quality of the debate and arguments between counsel and the Deputy President was impressive and I feel privileged to have been a part of that.” – Thekla Fellas.
