Fast Track Appeal Granted in Library Closure Case

20 Oct 2011 | by Caroline Sweeney

Lord Justice Elias has granted permission to appeal and ordered that attempts should be made for it to be heard before the Court of Appeal early next month after campaigners, who sought a judicial review against Brent Council’s decision to close six libraries in north-west London, lost their bid in the High Court last week.

An Order has been made preventing Brent Council from taking steps to decommission the libraries in the meantime.
