Entering into development agreements has always been a minefield for CAs and developers, and the recent CA case will undoubtedly create uncertainty for existing agreement and future projects. The case is also an important reminder, as it marks the first use of the ineffectiveness remedy by an English court, which may encourage further use by the court of the remedy in the future.
