Charles Drinnan succeeds for the Isle of Wight Council, the Respondent in an Appeal against an enforcement notice under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

The Appellant appealed against an enforcement notice served by the Council over numerous dangerous fire safety issues in four properties on the Island – an important issue in the aftermath of the Grenfell fire. The Appeal was heard at Blackfriars Crown Court. 

Charles succeeded on all three issues, and secured the Council almost £15,000 in costs. 

During this case, Charles successfully resisted an application for a preliminary reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union.
