STAL PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENTS

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT STANSTED AIRPORT LIMITED (STAL) - CLAIMS RELATING TO AIRPORT WORKS DATING FROM 1999 TO 2007 

On 9 June 2016, STAL published a statement on claims relating to airport works dating from 1999 to 2007. That statement indicated STAL would provide further information on the claims process in due course. STAL is now in a position to publicise this information. There are four important features to note, namely:

1. If you wish to make a claim, you must provide details of the claim to STAL, as the statutory “Compensating Authority” at:

Compensation Claims
Stansted Airport Limited
Enterprise House
Bassingbourn Road
Essex
CM24 1QW

OR by emailing the relevant information to compensation_enquiries@stanstedairport.com

The information STAL requires is set out in the “Guide to Residents” which can be found here or obtained from the address above.

2. If the property to which a claim relates does not fall inside the area identified in the “Guide to Residents”, STAL believes it is unlikely the claim will attract compensation.

3. If the property to which a claim relates does fall inside the area identified in the “Guide to Residents”, there remains the requirement for the individual bringing the claim to demonstrate it has legal merit.

4. As the Compensating Authority, STAL may or may not be able to agree whether any compensation is owed to an individual claimant or the amount of any compensation which may be due. In those cases, please note STAL will only regard the claim in question as having been made "in time" if it has been referred to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) by the individual claimant no later than 31 July 2018.

The “Guide to Residents” contains supplementary information about the claims process. It is not to be regarded as a substitute for professional advice. STAL strongly recommends that individual claimants take independent professional advice.

Claims relating to airport works dating from 1999 to 2007 – Part 1 Compensation Claims

STAL recognises that there has been some uncertainty in recent years about the status of compensation claims relating to development works carried out at the airport in the 1999-2007 period.

Having reviewed the matter thoroughly, and in light of two recent legal decisions, STAL has decided to clarify the status of these claims to remove any uncertainty for local residents.

The relevant legislation is complex but, broadly, the owner of a residential property, at the time of the works, is entitled to compensation if they can show that the value of their house has been reduced as a direct result of those works and provided they bring their claim “in time”.

STAL confirms it remains willing to consider claims from qualifying residents and will, for the time being, treat them as having been made “in time”. This means that residents who believe they may be entitled to compensation can now submit a claim. Of course, residents will still have to show that their claims have legal merit.

STAL will announce more details on the process to be followed shortly, including the specified period for lodging claims which will be of sufficient duration to allow residents to take professional advice. STAL will also be discussing these issues with the Stansted Airport Consultative Committee.
