High Court rules Qatari Diar breached terms of contract with Candy brothers over Chelsea Barracks

Mixed emotions for the Candy brothers today as the High Court ruled that Qatari Diar had indeed breached its contract with CPC Group, however it was not liable to pay the £81m compensation previously requested by Christian and Nick Candy. Mr Justice Vos stated that both firms ‘were faced with a very difficult position once the Prince of Wales intervened in the planning process’ and that ‘his intervention was, no doubt, unexpected and unwelcome.’ The Candy brothers were claiming compensation after Qatari Diar withdrew new designs for the Chelsea Barracks development by Rogers Stirk Harbour on the eve of a planning decision after Prince Charles expressed his dislike of the modernist concept.
