The legal case of Girling vs East Suffolk Council will be heard in the High Court on 8th September 2020. The legal challenge, brought by TASC supporter Joan Girling, is a judicial review of the September 2019 decision by East Suffolk Council granting planning permission to the giant French energy company, EdF. The approved plan includes cutting down the 100-yearold Coronation Wood to create space for the Sizewell C nuclear development. Permission has been granted for judicial review on two grounds of challenge. Firstly, that it is arguable there were deficiencies within the Environmental Impact Assessment relied upon by the Council in making their planning decision and, secondly, on the basis of evidence required to show exceptional circumstances justifying the infliction of a major development on the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). TASC and Joan argue that there is a lack of such evidence in support of this development.
