The parties met.
The Birtwells lawyer announced at the beginning “There will be no Covenants”.
With patience from the objectors and persistence from Glen James, things got back on track.
Finally discussion of the contents of the draft Covenants which had been with the Birtwells since January 24, 2017, without receipt of a revised draft identifying their concerns.
Extensive changes were requested by the Birtwells and conceded by the objectors, including:
no promise to return the use of the site to residential and agricultural and to apply for planning permission in same terms after 20 years or earlier if they sell before then (contrary to paras 1, 5 and 9(o) and (p) of Birtwell 18.11.06 letter to Glen James).
Major restructuring of Covenants to meet concerns of the Birtwells.
