Court On Protests

by msecadm4921

The High Court found in favour of the City of London Corporation in relation to its highways and planning responsibilities at St Paul’s Cathedral. The Corporation had taken its case to court to remove protesters’ tents and equipment from outside St Paul’s.

Stuart Fraser, the City of London Corporation’s Policy Chairman, said after the Court judgment on January 18: “We took this action to clear the tents and equipment at St Paul’s. We hope the protesters will now remove the tents voluntarily. If not, and subject to any appeal proceedings, we will be considering enforcement action.

‘‘Lawful protests are a regular part of City life but tents, equipment and increasingly, quite a lot of mess and nuisance, is not what a highway is for and the public generally is losing out – as evidence before the court made clear.’’

A Planning and Transportation Committee meets on 31 January and will consider the judgment.
