A disabled pensioner who lost a High Court battle with Barnet Council over controversial £320million outsourcing plans has taken her fight to the Court of Appeal.
New Barnet resident Maria Nash had her claim for a judicial review of the One Barnet outsourcing programme thrown out by a High Court judge in April.
On Monday, the 68-year-old’s legal team opened a two-day appeal hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice.
Ms Nash originally called for a judicial review of the plans to outsource a swathe of council services to two private companies on the grounds that the council failed to consult residents and did not meet equality obligations.
In April, judge Lord Justice Underhill rejected Ms Nash’s judicial review claim, insisting the court action was launched too late.
