Frontier – restrictive covenants

Frontier Estate Limited (Frontier) has secured planning permission in respect of a 2 ½ storey, 71 bed care home. However, part of the land upon which the development was intended to be implemented was subject to restrictive covenants benefitting adjoining land which was owned by national housebuilders. That land was part of a large housing estate which had recently been completed, but the housebuilders had retained the benefit of the covenants and sought to prevent the implementation of the care home scheme.
