What is this case about?
On 17th May 2018 Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, published a Written Ministerial Statement outlining the government’s current strategy on fracking. This statement seeks to impose an unacceptable level of government control on local planning applications and will significantly reduce the ability of democratically elected local councils to establish their own parameters for fracking in their area. I believe this is both undemocratic and illegal, and I am therefore seeking to challenge this Ministerial Statement in court through a Judicial Review.
