Rail Freight Interchange, Park Street: 17 June 2013 Update, SADC Refused Application for Judicial Review

Post date: Jun 17, 2013 4:45:38 PM

A High Court judge has refused St Albans City and District Council permission to apply for Judicial Review in the proposed Radlett (Park Street) Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) matter.  The Judge considered the application on the documentation submitted by the Council, the defendant, and interested parties.

In February 2013, the Council had sought a Judicial Review of a decision by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. 

The challenge related to the Secretary of State’s decision not to re-open the planning inquiry into the proposed Radlett SRFI and conjoin it with an inquiry into an alternative site near Slough. 

Full details, including the High Court order, issued on 14 June 2013, detailing reasons for refusal of permission, is available on the St Albans City and District Council website.
