North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has received compensation of over £1 Million for land required in widening the North Circular Road in London, negotiated on its behalf by Howard Jenkins.
Under the original Compulsory Purchase Order, Transport for London proposed compensation of £385,000 based on industrial land values. On behalf of NLWA, Howard Jenkins commissioned planning consultants to apply, successfully, to the London Borough of Enfield for the grant of a Section 17 Certificate confirming that planning permission would have been granted for retail development. As a result, Howard Jenkins was able to negotiate an improved payment of £1,155,000. Transfer of the land and payment of compensation has now been completed, although had been delayed due to legal problems in title.
