27th May 2009 WESTERN POWER TO SEEK JUDICIAL REVIEW OF WELSH ASSEMBLY GOVERNMENT'S DECISION.
We understand that Western Power are applying for a judicial review of the decision to reject their planning appeal, made by the Welsh Assembly Government Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing. However, the decision cannot be challenged merely because they disagree with the Minister’s judgement. For a challenge to be successful they would have to show that the Minister misinterpreted the law or, for instance, that the inquiry, hearing, or other appeal procedures were not carried out properly, leading to unfair treatment. If a mistake has been made, and the Court considers it might have affected the outcome of the appeal, it will return the case to WAG for re-consideration.
