Judicial Review - Appeals

Strategic Environmental Assessment

HS2AA have established that a Strategic Environmental Assessment was required for HS2, and that the work done ( by HS2 ) to date did not comply with the SEA regulations. This was agreed by all 3 judges. However, they also decided ( by 2 to 1 ) that the January 2012 announcement ( Decisions and Next Steps ) did not in fact constitute a decision, so no law has ( as yet ) been broken. See the HS2AA press release ( point 4 ) for details.

HS2AA have been given leave to appeal to the Supreme Court.Victory would render the January 2012 'decision' illegal.
