We won in the High Court today. How do we get from here to safe sustainable travel on High St Ken? – Better Streets for RBKC
It was a long and hot day in court. On one level it seemed an easy question – our solicitor had made an admin error, it looked like the court had made some errors itself too which hadn’t helped, we’d said sorry, tried to fix it, no harm had been done, it only came to light because we (not RBKC) were trying to progress the case, wasn’t it just a quick, “no problem, but don’t do it again”?
Three hours of oral submissions and hundreds of pages of bundles and case precedent references submitted later we found our answer. The judge considered matters carefully, and then over the course of an hour outlined his reasoning to allow our application for relief from sanctions.
