The Council has been informed by the High Court that Botley Parish Action Group’s (BPAG) application for permission to apply for judicial review on the Boorley Green Planning Permission has been refused.
The reasons given by the High Court for the decision were that they were not persuaded by the Claimant’s arguments and concludes that the Council’s reasons for granting permission were quite adequate as a matter of law.
BPAG have been ordered to pay a contribution towards the Council’s legal costs.
BPAG have seven days from the date on which they receive the Court Order to request that the decision be reconsidered at a hearing.
Council Leader Keith House
“ We knew that the Council had a strong position and are delighted with the High Court’s decision to refuse a Judicial Review . We now look forward to progressing the development and provide much needed homes for local people.”
