Update November 10: Bath Preservation Trust has sent a pre-action letter to B&NES relating to the proposed judicial review of B&NES decision to grant planning permission for the development of a 136 bed student accommodation and cricket club facilities at the Bath Cricket Club (reference 17/04338/FUL). We hope that BANES will consider carefully whether to use public resources in defending the proposed judicial review. We have requested that B&NES consent to an order quashing its decision which would avoid the need for litigation of this decision and ensure that the decision is remitted to BANES Development Management Committee for re-determination. The pre-action letter sets out a number of proposed grounds of challenge to the decision to grant planning permission which ultimately centre around the decision being “irrational”. Bath Preservation Trust have given careful consideration to pursuing this matter and have taken legal advice on judicial review. We rely on the generosity and support of public donations, if people would like to pledge support (big or small) please do so here.
