The hearing before the Court of Appeal took place on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 July 2018.
The three judges first heard TWL’s case to which Essex County Council and Ian Tucker, the Applicant for the registration of the Village Green, replied through their Counsel. It is always very difficult and indeed dangerous to try to forecast the outcome of such proceedings at which long and detailed arguments are examined in minute detail. However, following our success both before the Inspector and Judge at first instance in the High Court, we and our legal team remain optimistic of the outcome.
Our thanks go to the residents of Mistley who attended Court on both days to support our cause.
It is not expected that the judgement will be handed down before the autumn but as soon as we receive any news we will post it here.
