We hope youve kept as well as can be expected during these uncertain times. In MCR city ctr the lack of green space was keenly felt during lockdown.
We've been really taken with #buildbackbetter & feel our fight with the council to stop opening the former CRP as a car park is now more important than ever.
Earlier this year a judge granted us permission to appeal the council's decision. (Granted on one ground). We asked our lawyers to appeal for permission to include broader arguments on how air quality & traffic levels would be impacted by adding a 440-space car park.
We have been advised that we have very good prospects for succeeding in this appeal which will significantly enhance our case to overturn the planning decision.
Whilst this has added to our costs, we feel it is vitally important to review exactly how the Council dismissed air quality concerns when deciding to grant permission to itself.
