Logo INEOS Chlorvinyls INEOS EfW permit challenge (JR) Energy from Waste facility, Weston Point, Runcorn

Overview

A local campaign group ‘Halton Action Group Against The Incinerator’ (‘HAGATI’) commenced judicial review proceedings against the granting of an environmental permit for INEOS proposed Energy from Waste facility in Runcorn

Strategy

We mounted a robust defence of the judicial review proceedings launched by HAGATI. By working with the defendant and the Environment Agency, we ensured the defence team used a coordinated and consistent approach to highlight the shortcomings of the challenge. With our 100% success rate in defending such challenges, we were able to apply our years of experience to respond to the claim quickly and constructively. 

Outcome

Proceedings were withdrawn before the permission stage.

Client Comment

The quality and depth of advice received from Zyda law is impressive and has been instrumental in defining our strategy. Their can do attitude and speed of response is second to none and communications are clear and considered. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm.
