Appeal hearing for our Ofwat legal challenge re: failure to regulate sewage discharges

Yesterday we were back in the High Court for our appeal for permission for judicial review of Ofwat’s failure to regulate sewage discharge.

This appeal follows an earlier court hearing in September 2022 when our request for permission for judicial review was refused by Mr Justice Bourne.

Yesterday a different judge listened to our arguments, and those of Ofwat, and reserved judgement until a later date.

Our fingers are crossed that we are granted permission to proceed with this case.

There’s coverage today in The Express (here).

Many thanks to everyone who supported our crowdfunder – the case wouldn’t have been possible without your help!
