Legal challenge to Southend Airport runway extension fails
11:47am Monday 11th April 2011 in News
A LEGAL challenge against Southend Airport’s runway extension has been thrown out for the second time.
The judicial review application by a campaigner against the extension plans was dismissed by a High Court judge this morning.
Laura Millard, a Leigh resident and member of campaign group Stop Airport Extension Now, wanted Southend Council's decision to allow the runway extension to be reviewed in the High Court.
But, following a two-day oral hearing last week, Judge Waksman ruled that her claim was not sufficiently arguable to justify a full hearing.
