Sun Lane High Court Statutory Challenge

Published: 09 January 2020

On Thursday 12th of December, Walker Morris, on behalf of CEG filed an application for a statutory challenge to the decision made by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government in relation to the called-in planning application at Sun Lane. This was followed on Monday 16th of December, when Bradford Council filed a similar statutory challenge to the Secretary of State’s decision.

Both Parish Council and the Burley Objectors Group were informed of these proceedings. Since this is a matter of law that is being challenged, it is unlikely that either the Parish Council or Burley Objectors Group will have a role in proceedings, for which a QC would need to be engaged anyway.
