Natural Power has been working alongside Tidal Lagoon Power on the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project which was granted planning permission last month.Natural Power’s team has completed pre-construction bird surveys for the project, and has been commissioned to deliver a desk-based review of wading bird numbers to inform mitigation proposals, Natural Power’s press release reads.The marine mammal team has also been supporting Tidal Lagoon Power during the consent process including conducting risk assessments and consulting with Natural Resources Wales.Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project was granted the planning consent for the construction of the world’s first tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay by the UK Secretary of State, Amber Rudd, on July 9.Ruth De Silva, Senior Marine Ecologist at Natural Power, said: “The wave and tidal industries have had a tough time recently. With other projects being forced to scale back, there is a degree of uncertainty and nervousness, so it’s very encouraging to have the support of the UK Government here.”Swansea Bay 320 MW tidal lagoon project has a design life of 120 years and a net annual power output of over 500 GW/h.It is enough to meet the annual electricity requirement of over 155.000 homes, or over 90 percent of homes in the Swansea Bay area, according to Tidal Lagoon Power.Natural Power is an independent renewable energy consultancy and products provider that offers proactive and integrated consultancy, management and due diligence services across the onshore wind, offshore wind, wave, tidal, biomass, photo voltaic and hydro sectors.[mappress mapid=”557″]
Disclosure – Misrepresentation – Mortages – Spouses The appellant (W) appealed against a decision ordering her and her former husband (H) to give possession of their house to the respondent lender (F), together with a money judgment, by way of enforcement of a mortgage. H and W lived in their matrimonial home with their children and her mother. H got himself into financial difficulties by overspending on his credit cards. He persuaded W that they needed to remortgage their home to manage his debts. Shortly after they granted a mortgage to F, W found out that H had been having an affair. In due course they divorced, and then H lost his job and was made bankrupt on his own petition. W acquired H’s interest in the house from his trustee in bankruptcy for £1. She found it impossible to maintain the instalments due to F and it started possession proceedings. The judge rejected W’s defences of undue influence and misrepresentation by H, finding that she had made her own choice to participate in the mortgage. It was common ground that F had had constructive notice of any undue influence or misrepresentation that might have been perpetrated by H, so its position would be affected by the outcome. W submitted that the court could, on the judge’s primary facts coupled with her own evidence, decide by inference that by the time of the mortgage H had decided to leave her, and that the mortgage involved three fraudulent misrepresentations, each of which was sufficient on its own to justify the setting aside of the transaction: first, that it was the only way to preserve the house as their home; second, his false promise that he would pay the instalments to F; third, his deliberate concealment of his affair. Held: (1) The starting point was that the judge had been entitled to conclude on the evidence that by the time of the mortgage H had not decided to leave W and his family. As to the first alleged misrepresentation, the court should not interfere with the judge’s conclusion that it had not been shown that H did not honestly believe that the mortgage was the only way of protecting their home from his creditors. (2) As to the second alleged misrepresentation, H’s subsequent track record in staying at the house for another year, even after W found out about his affair, and in paying the instalments due to F during that period, was a sufficient basis for the judge’s conclusion that his promise to W to pay those instalments was not dishonest. (3) H’s concealment of his affair from W did amount to undue influence sufficient to vitiate the mortgage transaction as between them. A finding of undue influence did not depend, as a necessary prerequisite, upon a conclusion that the victim made no decision of her own, or that her will and intention was completely overborne. A conscious exercise of will could nonetheless be vitiated by undue influence, Drew v Daniel  EWCA Civ 507,  2 FCR 365 applied. The first question was whether W reposed a sufficient degree of trust and confidence in H to give rise to an obligation of candour and fairness on his part, Royal Bank of Scotland Plc v Etridge (No2)  UKHL 44, (2002) 2 AC 773 followed. For two reasons, she did. First, she regarded H as being in charge of the family finances, albeit not to an extent that excluded her from any participation in important decisions. It would be wrong to confine a husband’s obligation of candour and fairness when proposing a risky financial transaction to his wife to cases where she meekly followed his directions without question. The purpose of an obligation of candour was that the wife should be able to make an informed decision properly appraised of the relevant circumstances. Second, the specific transaction that H put to W required her to take on trust his sworn promise to pay the instalments due to F. There was therefore both a pre-existing relationship of trust and confidence, and an intensification of it derived from the very basis of the proposed transaction, Thompson v Foy  EWHC 1076 (Ch), (2010) 1 P & CR 16 considered. The second question was whether H’s affair was something which his obligation of fairness and candour towards W required him to disclose in connection with his request that she charge her interest in their home as security for his debts. Given the difficulty of the choice she faced, and that her decision to agree to his request was based on her assumption that he was as committed as she was to their marriage and family life, there was no doubt that his affair should have been disclosed, Royal Bank of Scotland Plc v Chandra  EWHC 105 (Ch) considered. Moreover, his non-disclosure of it was deliberate. Appeal allowed. Jayne Hewett v First Plus Financial Group Plc: CA (Civ Div) (Lords Justice Jacob, Leveson, Mr Justice Briggs): 24 March 2010 Simon Redmayne (instructed by Hatch Brenner (Norwich)) for the appellant; Jeremy Lightfoot (instructed by Eversheds (Cardiff)) for the respondent.

President of the Supreme Court Lord Neuberger closed the Global Law Summit by asking attendees to take away and act on the more challenging messages that they had heard at the summit.‘The danger of a gathering like this,’ Neuberger said, is that it is held in a ‘self-congratulatory bubble’ where it was easy to ‘say the right things’. By contrast, doing the right thing could be ‘daunting’, he warned.Neuberger cited the need to protect the rights and access to justice of ‘prisoners and asylum seekers’, and made reference to the importance of public funding. A commitment to the rule of law ‘costs money’, he said, ‘to provide courts and to employ a first-rate judiciary’.Judges for their part, Neuberger added, had a duty to focus on minimising the time and cost involved in achieving justice.
Question: My daughter sponsored me for my Green Card and we went to the Immigration office for my interview and everything was fine. But the officer said that I needed to send in some documents about an arrest that I had way back many years ago for driving without a license, before she could issue my Green Card. She gave me a paper to include with the documents when I sent them back to her. I went to the police station and got some documents from them about the case and sent them to the officer several days later – way before the deadline, then waited for word from Immigration that my case was approved. But instead, I was shocked to just now receive a denial letter saying that I didn’t send her the correct court document. I thought that the police documents were the right ones. I’m so upset now and don’t know what to do. Can you please help me to get the correct documents that the officer wants so I can go and give them to the immigration officer? If I do, will she approve my case? The letter says I can’t appeal.Answer: What you are experiencing is very common and avoidable. It’s important to understand that when the USCIS issues a request for documentation, you generally only have one opportunity to provide EXACTLY what is requested or the case will be denied. With USCIS Requests For Evidence, it is crucial to determine exactly what the request is asking for, so that you can provide it, since there are no second chances. For criminal cases, Immigrants must provide the USCIS with a certified copy of both the Police Report or Ticket AND the Court Disposition. One or the other will not be sufficient. It’s also important to know that in many cases like yours which cannot be Appealed, an Immigrant can still make a request for the officer to reopen the case or reconsider it (I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion). The filing fee is $630. A motion to reopen must be based on factual grounds, such as the discovery of new evidence or changed circumstances, while a motion to reconsider must establish that the decision was incorrect based on the evidence of record at the time of that decision. Unlike a motion to reopen, no new evidence circumstances can be submitted to support the request.While not required, due to the technical legal issues involved in such Motions, its always best to have a qualified Immigration attorney prepare and submit the request.In some Immigration cases, filing an Appeal, Motion to Reopen or Reconsider is not advised and just a waste of money. These types of cases involve eligibility issues, for instance when an Immigrant files for residency or some other immigration benefit that they are clearly not eligible for. For example, when a Resident sponsors a married a child. In such a case, no eligibility exists, since there is no immigration category for a adult married child of a Resident, only for single children. Only U.S. Citizens can sponsor their married children.In your case, it is likely possible to request that the case be reopened to submit the correct documentation and explanations as to why the documents were not initially provided. Processing times can be 3 to 6 months and if approved, the USCIS will reopen/reconsider the case and approve it.
