Victory for London City Airport legal action
The case to stop the expansion of London City Airport challenges Newham Council on 2 main issues:
- Government's climate change policy on airports
- The lack of community consultation.
With the help of our lawyers, the group has been given permission to take their case to a full judicial review hearing.
Phil Michaels, representing the group said:
We are very pleased that these important issues will now be heard at a full hearing. The case raises important issues both about public participation and about climate change and we look forward to presenting our arguments before the Court.
