HIGH COURT

Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed to the Ham&High it is working on the CS11 traffic modelling at the centre of its High Court defeat in September.

Transport for London is trying to formally appeal the High Court’s decision to block CS11 – the controversial cycle route that would have ripped up the Swiss Cottage gyratory.

When the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition announced plans to introduce Universal Credit back in 2010, they said that merging six existing benefits into one would reduce child poverty, simplify the social security system and ensure work always pays.

I can still remember clearly the first time I heard about Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld.

High Court judge Sir Ross Cranston, who last week blocked Transport for London’s (TfL) plans to begin building the CS11 cycle superhighway in Swiss Cottage, has denied TfL permission to appeal his judicial review ruling.

Letters, contributions and comments sent in from Ham&High readers this week.

Hard on the heels of a successful injunction granted by Judge Holgate against TfL, Judge Sir Ross Cranston gave judgement against TfL in the main judicial review hearing on September 13, 2018.

“Today’s ruling [...] focuses on procedure rather than the merits of the scheme.”

A cycling campaigner has blamed CS11’s legal defeat on Transport for London’s “watering down” of the project – and said it is time for London mayor Sadiq Khan to “improve his politics game”.

The CS11 cycle route from Swiss Cottage to Regent’s Park has been sensationally blocked by a High Court judge in what seems set to be a landmark ruling.

Sitting in the High Court last week took me back to my childhood. No, it wasn’t one spent anywhere near a courtroom of any kind. In fact, it was Transport for London’s trump argument that took me back.

Contaminated blood scandal victims have slammed the former director of the Royal Free Hospital’s haemophilia centre after unearthing a recording which sees her admit to non-consensual blood testing of patients and criticise campaigners.

Transport for London intends to press ahead with CS11 without Westminster Council’s consent because Sadiq Khan and the transport authority legally have the final say, a High Court judge has heard.

The High Court is today set to examine whether CS11, the controversial cycle route through Swiss Cottage, can legally be built.

We’ve all been in situations when someone’s mobile has gone off when it shouldn’t have.

Iron Maiden have admitted the songwriting credit on one of their best-known tracks is wrong – in response to a legal challenge by Hampstead rock agent Barry McKay.

Cycling campaigners have warned that CS11 could be “kicked into the long grass” and lead to riders getting injured at the Swiss Cottage gyratory.

Last Thursday, Judge Holgate in the High Court slapped an injunction on TfL to stop works to the Swiss Cottage gyratory as part of CS11 without consent from the other relevant authorities.

Campaigners against the controversial 100 Avenue Road development have reacted with dismay to news it will go back to a council vote in just two weeks.

A High Court judge has passed Westminster City Council’s bid for an injunction and judicial review into CS11, but said he was “exasperated” by both sides.

Westminster City Council is going to the High Court to try and stop work starting on CS11, as Transport for London said it will start the Swiss Cottage Gyratory on July 30.

The faith leader who successfully overturned senior coroner Mary Hassell’s “cab-rank” system has criticised her new draft policy to consider every death in inner north London for possible fast-tracking.

The High Court has told Camden Council it must pay at least £68,000 in legal fees after senior coroner Mary Hassell lost a court battle over how she treats deaths in Hackney, Islington, Camden and Tower Hamlets.

The senior coroner for inner north London Mary Hassell is set to hold a public consultation into the new policy for how she should deal with deaths in the area, but has only given people a matter of days to send in written submissions.
