Planning permission to carry out fracking challenged


Re: R (Friends of the Earth Ltd & Ors) v North Yorkshire County Council [2016] EWHC 3303 (Admin)

Claimants challenged the decision by North Yorkshire County Council to grant planning permission to Third Energy to carry out fracking. The claimants submit, inter alia, that the council have unlawfully failed to take into account an assessment of climate change impacts.

David Wolfe QC was involved in this case.
