A healthy mix of retail, office, leisure, residential and health is seen as the future for our high streets and retail destinations. The current environment is redefining “mixed use” development; shifting from single use with add-ons, to a truly vibrant destination that matches what the particular community – small or large – needs.Structural changes in the retail sector, driven by factors that include changing consumer behaviour, technology and rising costs, are speeding up the agenda. Constant attention is needed to repurpose what is on offer. The impact of COVID-19 has made the need for action more urgent. The right combination will vary from location to location. Responses will be individual not uniform, depending on a variety of dynamics - local land values, demographics and economy, for example. We have worked and are working on a variety of mixed use and repurposed schemes throughout the country; bringing together bespoke teams and developing bespoke solutions for each of our clients. Our experience and networks, in both the public and private sector, means that we can facilitate collaborative partnerships for our clients that acknowledge their different specialisms.
Dedicated experts in retail, leisure, health and commercial offices come together, a flexible combination that brings together their particular knowledge in support of every part of your plans.

The EAT has held that the absence of mutuality of obligation will not necessarily prevent an individual from being a “worker”.
The Court of Appeal has ruled that the long-term effect of an impairment must be considered as at the date of the alleged discriminatory act and a tribunal is not entitled to consider events occurring after the alleged discriminatory act.
The EAT has held that the dismissal of an employee for causing “upset and friction” when implementing a new safety procedure was automatically unfair.
The EAT has held that if discriminatory acts play a sufficient part in the overall course of conduct a constructive dismissal may be discriminatory. This may be the case despite the “last straw” triggering the dismissal not being a discriminatory…
