"Residents' champion vows to fight on despite latest setback"


Link to Fulham Chronicle

"ESTATE residents lost their latest High Court battle arguing against the lawfulness of knocking down their homes – but a judge insisted they were right to protest.

Threatened tenant, pensioner Harold Greatwood, launched another bid for a judicial review into Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s decision to sell land on the West Kensington and Gibbs Green estates to developers Capco.

Despite being unsuccessful, judge Clive Lewis QC praised the ‘careful, considered and moderate way’ in which Mr Greatwood put his case forward, and refused the council’s application for costs, saying the residents’ fight was understandable.

Mr Lewis told the hearing:
“It is not surprising that he has brought the matter before this court. He is supported by a number of other tenants who are also concerned, as you would expect, about the impact on their homes and the places where they live."
