Fatal Fire "Accidental"
St Albans Council Can't Challenge Rail Freight Terminal
St Albans City and District Council has been told it can't challenge the decision to go ahead with a controversial large rail freight terminal at Park Street.
The Council had challenged the Secretary of State's decision to grant planning permission for the interchange but the High Court dismissed the Council's challenge on 13 March.
On 13 April, the Council applied to the Court of Appeal for permission to appeal the dismissal.
The Council has now received notice, dated 29 June 2015, that permission has been refused. In his decision, Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Sullivan says that he considers the grounds of appeal put forward by the Council do not have a real prospect of success.
The Council now has seven days to decide whether to request that Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Sullivan's decision is reconsidered at an oral hearing before the Court of Appeal. We will take advice from our legal advisors before making this decision.
