LEGAL representatives from Brandon Estates Ltd and Rugby Borough Council attended Nuneaton’s Warwickshire Justice Centre on Tuesday (February 6).
Brandon Estates were intending to appeal the Community Protection Notice served on them on September 26, 2017 in relation to the security measures they had imposed as owners of Coventry Stadium.
The hearing was adjourned and both parties reached agreement outside of court.
The CPN served on 26 September 2017 stands, with a variation to section 2 agreed by both parties as an addendum to the notice. The addendum reads as follows.
2. Use all reasonable endeavours to secure the site against unlawful access. To that end reasonable endeavours shall include:
Maintenance and repair where necessary of all perimeter structures, building and security locks and similar apparatus located at the site as of 1 February 2018.
Secondary security gates to the main entrance shall be modified in agreement with the Fire Service and Police and secured as agreed taking into account the Crime Prevention Design Document attached to this Notice.
The perimeter and main entrance gates shall be upgraded to closed screening to obscure the site from view to any external party, with a separate access facility to any person having a legal right of access through land comprised within the main gates.
In so far as any such works as above are not currently in place they shall be completed within 28 days from 6 February 2018.
The notice with addendum has now gone up on site.
Brandon Estates Ltd also paid costs for the Council arising from the case.
