Victory in the United Nations on Birmingham Green Waste Case

Many people remember the saga in the past about Green Waste. I took a court case out against the City Council and the City Cleared up the waste, but the court decided to award costs against me. I took this through an appeal in the Admin Court and a second appeal in the Court of Appeal (both of which I lost). I then took it to the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee where this week I won. The details are here: It is quite significant as it requires the UK to change its procedures so that people can safely challenge public authorities on environmental issues without worrying about being hit by a hefty costs bill. The fact is that there were two other people hit by this in the UK and it had shut down one local environmental charity because of the impact.
