Judicial Review of the council's sale of the Oval chalet site

Submitted by webmaster on Thu, 06/10/2016 - 13:10

The City Council had tried to stop the Oval Campaign's application for a Judicial Review of their sale of the site, asserting that we were out of time and that all our five Ground were too weak to be worth considering.
At a 2 hour hearing in June, the Hon. Mr Justice Supperstone heard both sides and decided that the Oval Campaign were not late, due to the council’s withholding of documents, and that all of our 5 Grounds were worth airing at a full hearing, which is now listed for hearing in December.


The Oval Campaign

Please help us defend legal Open Spaces from being given over for development without proper public consultation. The Oval case is turning out to be of national importance in ensuring that the legal safeguards that exist for Open Spaces cannot be circumvented, and the Open Spaces Society has contributed to our fighting fund.
