RAF Scampton High Court hearing: West Lindsey’s plea for regeneration

The hearing will resume tomorrow

By Local Democracy Reporter

The High Court has been informed of West Lindsey’s “dire need” for regeneration amid allegations that the government has acted unlawfully in its plans for RAF Scampton.

West Lindsey District Council began its permission hearing today, the first step in seeking a judicial review against the Home Office’s proposal to accommodate up to 2,000 asylum seekers at the former home of the Dambusters.
