Whitby v Secretary of State for Transport Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and Others: Admn 14 Oct 2015

‘The Claimant brings three related claims challenging the decision to construct the Ordsall Chord – a proposed 340m elevated chord railway in the Ordsall area of Greater Manchester – which will link the three main stations in Manchester, and improve rail capacity. The challenge arises from the choice of route, which will result in substantial harm to a collection of listed heritage assets associated with the historic development of the railways in the 19th century.’
