Campaigns: LTDA / UTAG joint legal challenge of Streetspace and A10 Bishopsgate Corridor succeeds
In August, law firm Chiltern Law, acting on behalf of the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association (LTDA) and United Trade Action Group (UTAG) launched two separate legal challenges against the Mayor of London and Transport for London – seeking a Judicial Review of the Streetspace for London Plan and associated Guidance and a further specific challenge to the A10 Bishopsgate Scheme.
With more and more damaging Streetspace schemes being announced and potential for further schemes excluding licensed taxis, the legal team subsequently petitioned the Court to combine these two actions and expedite the proceedings.
The LTDA and UTAG were granted permission for a Judicial Review of the Mayor of London and Transport for London’s (TfL) Streetspace schemes in September 2020. The case was heard at the High Court of Justice, Queen’s Bench Division, Planning Court over two days 25th and 26th November 2020.
