In the wake of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris, Patrick Delas, senior associate at Russell-Cooke LLP and Avocat au Barreau de Paris, examines the implications that the fire may have had on the restoration of buildings of national heritage and how Brexit could impact the status and tax efficiency of donations to a foreign charity or restoration fund.
The French government intends to act swiftly in order to 'facilitate completion of the restoration work' and depart from regulations normally applicable to the restoration of heritage property in terms of planning, environment and transport.
President Macron has announced completion within five years.
Patrick Delas appears in LexisNexis discussing and examining the after effect of the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.
