Naturalist’s HS2 court appeal to go ahead

A NATURALIST who claims that building HS2 will cause irreversible destruction of ancient woodlands has succeeded in his bid to take his case to the Appeal Court. Chris Packham lost his bid to obtain an injunction and a judicial review in the High Court on 3 April this year. He maintains that the Prime Minister and his transport secretary failed to take environmental impacts properly into account when they gave approval for HS2, and that they also failed to have regard to the Paris Agreement on carbon emissions and climate change, and the ‘carbon budgets’ agreed by the UK. The appeal hearing has been arranged for 8 July.
