PLANS to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport have suffered a major setback after the High Court ruled that ministers' decision to give a green light to the project was legally 'untenable.'
A coalition of councils and campaign groups, including Hammersmith & Fulham, mounted a legal challenge against expansion.
Lord Justice Carnwath ruled that the 2003 Air Transport White Paper, the foundation of expansion plans, is obsolete because it is inconsistent with the Climate Change Act 2008.
Campaigners say the ruling means government ministers will have to 'go back to square one' in putting the case for expansion.
