Application for judicial review of fracking decision denied


Re: Preston New Road Action Group & Ors v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government & Ors [2017] EWHC 808 (Admin)

Application for judicial review of the decision to approve Cuadrilla drilling for shale gas in Fylde. Although the Court was satisfied that permission should be granted for each of the grounds to be argued, it held that none of the grounds had been made out in substance, and so dismissed the claim.

David Wolfe QC was involved in this case.
