The judge in the injunction case shocked everyone yesterday, by not only granting injunctions against the 3 named defendants, but against “persons unknown” as well.
Though the injunction is not due to come into force until next Tuesday (22nd August 2017), the defendants have only 48 hours to appeal the ruling. They are currently seeking legal advice.
The Save Nether Edge Trees group will be holding a public meeting at The Banner Cross Hotel this coming Monday to discuss how the ruling affects the campaign and where we go from here. All supporters welcome.
The fight goes on.
The next Save Nether Edge Trees public meeting will be held on Monday 21st August at 8.00pm.
The main focus of the meeting is likely to be the verdict of the injunction case, which is currently due to announce on Tuesday 15th August. The announcement will be followed by a 48 hour period during which either side can appeal.
Location is the upstairs room at the Banner Cross Pub, 971 Ecclesall Road.
Please arrive by 7.45pm for a prompt start at 8.00pm. Thanks.
All supporters welcome
