Following Bristol City Council's decision to grant Bristol Zoo's planning application to develop their West Car Park site, CHIS was sufficiently concerned that due process had not been followed in the making of the decision that we agreed to support a group of local residents in challenging its lawfulness by instituting proceedings for Judicial Review.
Our solicitors served on BCC a letter before action, setting out our case, as a result of which the Council and the Zoo have agreed to settle. This proposed settlement needs to be ratified by the Court and we are currently awaiting that decision. Once it is received we expect to be in a position to issue full details of the settlement.
