Varey v United Kingdom: ECHR 30 Jan 2001

The court dismissed the application on the announcement of a friendly settlement, the government of the UK having paid damages and costs to a gypsy family who had been repeatedly denied a right to create a caravan site on land they had purchased despite the evident need for land for such purposes, and the decreasing damage to the green belt. The claim had been a preliminary finding of an infringement of the applicant’s article 13(1) rights.
