Success in first round of Heathrow court case !

Friends of the Earth and other groups who are taking the government to court over a third runway at Heathrow have overcome the first hurdle. Following this morning’s first appearance in the High Court to challenge Heathrow’s third runway, Mr Justice Holgate has ordered that Friends of the Earth and all 4 other claimants go forward to a full trial. A so called ‘rolled-up’ hearing will now take place in March 2019.  FOE press release.
