Davyhulme Incinerator Judgement Day
Trafford Council’s challenge against the Barton Renewable Energy Plant (Davyhulme Incinerator) is to take place in February.
The High Court hearing will be open to the public and is currently scheduled to take place on 10th and 11th February at the Civil Justice Courts, Spinningfields, Manchester. The specific court room and times are yet to be confirmed.
Court dates and times are usually only confirmed by the court the day before the planned hearing, so we advise that members of the public wishing to attend the hearing regularly keep an eye on our website (www.BreatheCleanAirGroup.co.uk) and Twitter Account (@BCAGtrafford) for starting times and any last minute changes.
We have also been advised that proceedings are very legalistic, meaning that no witnesses or new evidence are taken. The Judge will have read the papers and consider the matter based upon the submissions made prior to the hearing by each parties’ barristers. The Court will not tolerate any disruption or an attempt from the public to make their own views heard.
Time and time again, our community has voiced that this dirty incinerator is unwelcome in Davyhulme. We have fought together at every step to protect our health and that of future generations. This hearing may be the final chance we get to send the clear message that we stand solidly together to stop this being imposed upon us. We hope to see you there!
