The Upper Tribunal, Lands Chamber is consulting on revised Practice Directions and invites comments from tribunal users


The Upper Tribunal, Lands Chamber’s current Practice Directions were made in 2010. Since then the Tribunal has acquired additional jurisdictions and modified its ways of working.

The new draft takes these changes into account.

An effort has been made to make the material accessible to users who may be unfamiliar with legal proceedings.

New material has been added, including on statements of case, disclosure, applications for permission to appeal, expert evidence and remuneration, and preparation for hearings.

New sections on appeals under section 18, Land Compensation Act 1961, and references under the Electronic Communications Code have been included.

The Tribunal would welcome suggestions for additional topics which could usefully be covered, or changes which would improve the draft,.

Responses to this consultation are invited by Friday, 31 January 2020.

They can be sent to or to the Registrar, Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), 5th Floor, Rolls Building, Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1NL.
