The High Court has thrown out a case by the owners of Daw Mill to take out a Judicial Review on the decision to reject their planning application to turn the site into a distribution park.
Local Councilor for Arley and Whitacre, Jodie Gosling said;
“This is fantastic news for local people. We’ve fought against these proposals with local people and LAWRAG
from the very beginning because of the damage and disruption this would have caused on local roads and local rural villages.
“We just aren’t able to cope with hundreds of extra HGV’s on our roads and this decision will be a huge relief for locals.”
Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Nuneaton, Zoe Mayou said;
“I’m delighted to hear the news that the High Court have threw out Harworth Estate’s application for a judicial review. The High Court said that the application was ‘totally without merit’ and ‘bound to fail’. This will be music to the ears of local people who have been fighting this plan for many years now.
“The simple fact is that Harworth’s should now do the right thing and return the land to green field within the green belt, as was promised and agreed many decades ago. The County Council should enforce that original planning condition without delay.”
Harworth Estates have yet to indicate whether they plan to appeal this decision.
