GUI LEGAL CHALLENGE FAILS – 12th June 2014

All,

You have all asked to be kept informed re the legal challenged lodged by GUI Ltd to Dacorum’s Core Strategy.

I am pleased to confirm that the Judge Mr Justice Lindblom handed down his judgment in the High Court late this afternoon, and found in favour of the Council on both of the grounds of challenge.  The challenge has therefore been dismissed.

The full transcript of the judgment will be placed on the Council’s website as soon as it is available (follow the link):  http://www.dacorum.gov.uk/home/planning-development/planning-strategic-planning/local-planning-framework/core-strategy/core-strategy-adopted-sept-2013)

GUI’s legal team submitted an appeal request at the judgment hearing today, but this was refused.  However, under the regulations they are still able to take this request to the Court of Appeal direct and have 21 days to do so.

If you require any further information, please let me know.

Kind regards

Laura Wood

Team Leader – Strategic Planning & Regeneration

Dacorum Borough Council
