The struggle to save Warren Farm continues. This is a recent email from the Hanwell Nature group:
‘After 9 long months, we can finally announce their is exciting news – a real break through in the campaign to protect Warren Farm.
cHanwell Nature’s legal team have found the strongest legal argument yet, and a local resident and member of Hanwell Nature has issued legal proceedings against Ealing Council’s decision to grant planning permission without undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment. (EIA) as to the impacts such a development would have. We firmly believe Ealing Council has a duty to protect our open green spaces, and the environment that we all share. This new legal action opens the door to a judicial review of that decision in the High Court. Therefore we need your help to make sure that happens.
WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT?
At a time of perilous climate change and the world’s attention firmly on creating solutions to protect our environment, we can’t keep looking away helplessly while our environment suffers at the hands of ill-considered development. It’s time to take a valiant stand for nature and ensure our Councils are protecting it when considering large developments, with high impact.
