'Barraud v CAA, with NATS, Gatwick and DfT as Interested Parties in the Defence'
In summary, our case is that the CAA should have Consulted on the airspace change that has happened. The CAA answered that it wasn't an airspace change, so they didn't need to.
Tens of thousands agreed with us and we raised £100,000 in a week locally, in order to commence the Judicial Review proceedings.
We lost the first stage - seeking Permission to go to the Full, Substantive Hearing. We appealed to the Court of Appeal. We won that Appeal, and indeed the judge reserved the Substantive Hearing for the Court of Appeal, the second highest Court in the land, as the decision will set precedents.
The process is now on hold while we see if the CAA et al play ball with their many promises to repair our airspace.
