The recent Court of Appeal decision in Borwick Development Solutions Limited v Clear Water Fisheries Limited considered whether solar panels and commercial fish pass to a buyer of the land.

He talks through the phasing out of BPS in England, the payment of “public money” for the delivery of “public goods” and the proposed changes to agricultural tenancies. Whilst the Bill primarily focuses on future powers for England, Jeremy also provides commentary and comparison with the policies being developed in the other devolved countries of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
