5th September 2009: WESTERN POWER SUCCESSFULLY CHALLENGE MINISTER'S DECISION
Yesterday afternoon the Welsh Assembly Government issued a press release stating that, having considered the legal case put forward by Western Power, it was not going to contest WPD's challenge of the Environment Minister's decision in the High Court (see news item for 17th April below). This does not mean that the development will go ahead, it simply means that the Welsh Assembly Government will have to reconsider their previous decision. The full press release can be read by clicking here. This is a disappointing outcome, and, as yet, we are unaware of the issues that have led to this successful challenge of the Minister's original decision. The revised decision is not expected until sometime in 2010.
