To stop the needless destruction of Coronation Wood, TASC supporter Joan Girling applies to Court of Appeal for permission to proceed with case against EDF’s premature development in readiness for the Sizewell C Development which may or may not go ahead TASC are pleased to advise our many supporters that we are continuing the legal action to prevent the destruction of Coronation Wood and Pill Box Field as part of premature building works in preparation for a possible Sizewell C development. The original challenge, brought by TASC supporter Joan Girling, called for a judicial review of the decision by East Suffolk Council in Sept 2019 to grant planning permission to the giant French energy company, EdF, to, amongst other things, cut down the 100 year-old Coronation Wood to create space for the Sizewell C nuclear development. The Judicial Review hearing took place in the High Court on 8th September 2020 with the decision dismissing the judicial review application being handed down on 1st October.
