Latest – Phone Mast Appeal

The last episode about the phone mast on Waverely Avenue is due tomorrow.

I have been informed by Valerie Vaz MP the following

This is to let you know that the first stage of Walsall MBC’s appeal against the Secretary of State’s decision will be heard at the Court of Appeal tomorrow at 10.30am before Lord Justice Pill, Lord Justice Sullivan and Lord Justice Tomlinson.

It has been listed for 2 days and Judgement may not be handed down immediately after the hearing.

We should remind ourselves the background is that the mast application was refused by 2nd class post but the phone mast operator say they did not receive the notice in time. The council say that the rejection was placed on their website and that constitutes public notification.

At this stage the council have lost all previous legal debate.
