Residential development

Have an eye to the future before agreeing an easement

In spite of recent changes to the subsidy regime and receiving a rough ride from both local communities and planning authorities, land is still being sought in earnest up and down the country for renewable energy development projects. We are still seeing considerable interest from landowners as the rental income (which can be around £1000 per acre) continues to make renewable energy developments an attractive revenue generator. However, regardless of the immediate financial inducements, it is crucial that all elements of the agreement between the developer and landowner are scrutinised, not least the easement agreements covering the connection with the national grid.
