Campaigners seeking a second judicial review in their bid to stop the go-ahead to fell a century-old Suffolk woodland will be back in the High Court tomorrow. TASC (Together Against Sizewell C) want a review of the decision by East Suffolk Council to allow Coronation Wood to be chopped down as part of preparations to build a new twin reactor nuclear power station. But the group’s first bid for a judicial review was thrown out by the High Court. On Wednesday, June 3, that decision will be reviewed by different judges – in a virtual court hearing held over Skype. Lawyers Leigh Day, acting on behalf of TASC, submitted their legal arguments last week and these will be debated in court at 10.30am.
