Lawyers for the campaign group Transport Action Network (TAN) have sought a judicial review of the £27bn Government roads plan.
Documents revealed that transport minister Grant Shapps dismissed guidance from civil servants in his own department to review the roads plan policy on environmental grounds.
The news comes after Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site (SSWHS) issued a legal claim to apply for a judicial review of the government’s decision to grant permission.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps approved the scheme in November despite planning officials’ recommendations to refuse the scheme, claiming the project would permanently harm the integrity of the World Heritage Site.
Thank you all so, so much for the love and appreciation you’ve shown us since we launched the New Blackmore Vale.
