News April/May 2024

Judicial Review, London. The December 2023 EECC submission ‘Objectors Rights’ AC-2023-LON-003728 is waiting for a judge to be appointed.

The Directive EU 2018/1972 further asserts that LPAs were assigned EECC competent authority status as soon as the EECC was agreed, and that assignment was direct under EECC Recital 22. As such they must be made competent to risk assess Telco applications in situ.

Please support the case via the gofundme page as they need to cover their costs to continue with this vital challenge.

Judicial Review, High Court Cardiff. Thursday 11th April. Steven Thomas V Cheltenham Borough Council. The plaintiff Steven Thomas presented his case with clarity and confidence, and it seemed to be heard well. Watch here for case report once a decision is reached some time in May.

“The news comes mere days after Britain’s Digital Infrastructure Minister asked all telecoms operators to stop deploying new telegraph poles and to share existing ones wherever possible.”

Digital Infrastructure minister Julia Lopez said new poles should only be installed “after ensuring that appropriate community engagement has taken place.”” It begs the question: What does “appropriate community engagement” actually mean??
