Council wins BSF Judicial Review

From LBWF website: 11 Feb: Waltham Forest Council has won its Judicial Review regarding the cancellation of The Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

Waltham Forest Council’s Leader, Cllr Chris Robbins, said: “The government now has to go back and reconsider how the devastating decision to cancel BSF projects in Waltham Forest was made. It is a victory for common sense and fair play. They must now make a decision on our funding based on the real evidence about the difficulties our schools face.
“We have said all along that we want to sit down and have an amicable discussion with the government about the difficulties our schools face.
“Whilst we are disappointed that we had to pursue a judicial review to get the government to reconsider their decision, we are hopeful that this judgement will now open the door to a real and constructive conversation about improving schools for Waltham Forest’s young people.”
