News release: 01 March 2013

On 14 December 2012, the Secretary of State decided not to re-open the Park Street Inquiry and conjoin it with the Colnbrook, Slough Strategic Railfreight application appeal.

St Albans City and District Council is applying for Judicial Review of his decision.

The Council�s Judicial Review application seeks to quash the decision and refer the matter back to the Secretary of State for reconsideration.

The Council is serving proceedings today against the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and against various parties with an interest in the claim. These are Helioslough Ltd, the developer of the proposed Radlett scheme; Goodman Logistics Development (UK) Limited, the company behind the proposed Colnbrook development; and Slough Borough Council.

The Council�s grounds of application can be found in its detailed statement available at: http://www.stalbans.gov.uk/planning/rail_freight_interchange.aspx
