High Court decision deferred till New Year
The High Court case concluded at 1pm today, with the Judge Wyn Williams adjourning his decision until some time in January. Yesterday, we had good coverage on BBC Wales and today an article in the Echo:
Barrister Alex Goodman whose acting on behalf of CATI’ Pauline Ellaway told the Judge that Cardiff council had flouted regulations and allowed waste management firm Viridor to build in Splott when it should not have done so.
Dubbing the council’s actions “procedurally inept” he claimed the authority’s reports and consultation process were flawed and that it failed to stop work when it should have.
Mr Goodman said CATI’s “submissions fell on deaf ears because work was allowed to proceed. No robust action was being taken in respect of development that was continuing apace.”
Best thanks to our Pauline for staying the course!
