RAF Scampton High Court hearing: Council fears ‘indefinite’ project

Government claims it could leave after 12 months

By Local Democracy Reporter

West Lindsey District Council has refuted Home Office claims that it only plans to use RAF Scampton as an asylum centre for a year.

The council continued its permission hearing at London’s Royal Courts of Justice today (Thursday), seeking a full judicial review of the government proposals to accommodate up to 2,000 asylum seekers at the former home of the Dambusters.
