As applications to discharge and/or modify restrictive covenants are on the rise, it is encouraging to see the Upper Tribunal taking a pragmatic approach.  In Re Holden's Application [2018] the Tribunal modified a restrictive covenant preventing use precluded the carrying on of any trade or business on the property to allow a double garage to be used as a dog grooming parlour.  It would be interesting to see if the same decision would have been reached had there been any objections to Holden's use.
