Planning Protocol acted as Professional Planning Expert Witness on this high profile appeal case which covered a 3 yr time frame. It involved a parcel of development land in the Springbank area of the City of Calgary. Our firm conducted research and presented the discoveries at the hearing. We gave testimony and we were also cross-examined.
We were successful on behalf of our clients Rick and Ellen Radomski. We were able to convince the Land Compensation Board that the Radomski’s were under compensated for the land which was expropriated from them right during a time when they were about to develop it into sellable lots for residential use.
It was a successful multi – million dollar settlement for our client.
Our clients had valuable land that they were forced out of by the city and province for the future Stoney Trail. Expropriation is... "the politically motivated and forceful confiscation and redistribution of private property outside the common law."
We provided expert witness supporting our clients claim that they were undersold. Part of efforts entailed doing primary research looking back into the archives about Stoney Trail as well as chronologing significant land developments.
Through our efforts our clients was awarded the appropriate value of their land.
