Stonehenge Safe as Judge Rules Road and Tunnel Development Unlawful — Sacred Earth Activism
Christa MackinnonJul 30
Stonehenge campaigners are celebrating victory after a judge ruled that Government planning approval granted to a £1.7 billion road and tunnel development at the sacred site was unlawful.
The finding by High Court Judge Hon. Mr Justice Holgate followed a judicial review of transport secretary Grant Shapps’ consent to the scheme last November against the recommendation of planning officials. The legal challenge was brought by Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site (SSWHS), which is part of campaign group the Stonehenge Alliance.
