The fight to retain Southall Town Hall is to go to a full judicial review hearing.
Campaigners seeking to preserve the Town Hall as a hub for the community had been disappointed when a judge decided that their case should not proceed. However at an 18th April hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice, Judge Kate Markus QC ruled the case should go to a full hearing.
A large number of campaign members and supporters demonstrated how important this issue is for the Southall community by attending the hearing.
After leaving the Court Janpal Basran who is deeply involved in the campaign said:
‘This is a momentous day for our community campaign and vindicates our claims about the shoddy way the sale was handled and the failure to properly consider the impacts of the sale. … Obviously there will be a full judicial review hearing, some months from now but for the time being we want to share information about our very successful day in court.’
Regular Save Southall Town Hall meetings take place every Monday 6.30 pm in, er, Southall Town Hall. Everyone is assured of a welcome.
