Case Analysis: Fearn v Trustees of the Tate Gallery [2018] EWHC 246 (Ch) – Tanfield Chambers

Posted March 20th, 2019 in housing, news, nuisance, privacy by sally

‘The claim related to a public viewing platform on the 10th Floor of the Tate Modern art gallery in Central London. The gallery overlooked a modern residential development approx.35m away with striking floor to ceiling windows. As a result, visitors using the platform could see into the living areas of the flats. There was evidence that there were up to 300 visitors at a time, and that a significant minority waived and shouted at the occupiers of the flats, took photos and posted pictures of the interiors of the flats on social media. The owners of the flats brought a claim for private nuisance against the trustees of the gallery.’
