Horse Hill Oil Drilling Judicial Review Court Of Appeal LondonAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
London, UK. 16th November, 2021. Environmental campaigners gather outside the Court of Appeal in support of a legal challenge by Sarah Finch, joined by Friends of the Earth, against a decision by Surrey County Council in 2019 to allow two decades of oil production at Horse Hill in Surrey. A High Court judge previously found that the council had acted lawfully in making its decision but Ms Finch is now asking the Court of Appeal to consider whether the Environmental Impact Assessment forming part of the planning decision-making process should also have taken into account the significant greenhouse gas emissions which will arise from the subsequent burning of the extracted oil.
