High Court refuses Shurlock Road occupiers permission to appeal
The High Court has refused the occupiers of the unauthorised traveller site at Shurlock Road permission to appeal its decision to refuse a judicial review.
His Honour Judge Jarman QC issued the decision on Tuesday (24 February) following the decision of 28 January when he refused the occupiers’ application for a judicial review.
He granted both parties additional time to make written submissions and Tuesday’s decision follows those submissions.

2015 has certainly opened at full bore after the pleasant days of Christmas.
In our own community, it was quite splendid to read that John Jenkins was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list. As many will know, John has worked tirelessly for sports for the disabled, both personally and as President and co-creator of SportsAble (formerly WAMDSAD) to the benefit of locally disabled people and even in the development of Paralympians from our area. Hearty congratulations must go to a man, who himself has been wheelchair bound, without complaint, throughout his life and who has done so much in support of fellow men and women.
