Gordons’ position as Judicial Review experts reaffirmed

Gordons’ expertise in judicial review cases was again recognised in early April when Matthew Howarth, head of the commercial litigation team, appeared on BBC Radio York to discuss the subject.

Mr Howarth was invited to give expert input regarding what judicial reviews are, despite Gordons not representing either party in the case being discussed.

That featured the North Yorkshire Waste Action Group (NYWAG), which is seeking a judicial review of the decision to grant planning consent for the waste incineration plant at Allerton Park, near Knaresborough.  Click here to find out more.

The proposal for the plant was developed by North Yorkshire County and the City of York councils, with the aim of reducing the amount of household waste they send to landfill.
