Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission plc v Auquhirie Land Co Ltd

Electricity transmission – Wayleave – Compensation – Fair notice of 'hope value' case. Court of Session: Refusing an appeal in a case which concerned the respondent's application for compensation after the Scottish Ministers granted the appellant a wayleave for electricity pylons over part of land on which the respondent intended to create wind farm, the court held that the Lands Tribunal had not erred in law in determining that the respondent's adjusted pleadings gave fair notice that its case was no longer based solely on a 'special assumption' but was based on 'hope value', and nor had the tribunal acted in a procedurally unfair manner giving rise to prejudice to the appellant.
