Parish Council receives Court date

Stoke Poges Parish Council has been informed that the hearing against the Secretary of State’s decision to grant prior approval to the Khalsa Secondary Academy in Stoke Poges will be heard in the High Court in London on 12th and 13th July. The Parish Council will be represented by Guy Williams from Landmark Chambers.

Vice-Chair of the Parish Council, Saera Carter, commented: “We are delighted that we finally have a date in the High Court for the village of Stoke Poges to have its voice heard. The Government have completely ignored the perfectly fair and reasonable arguments against siting a Secondary School in this beautiful Green Belt Buckinghamshire village. We look forward to being able to present our case to a Judge – whom we trust will agree with the District Council and the Planning Inspector to refuse prior approval for this school.”

The Parish Council will make a further statement following the outcome of the hearing in the High Court in July.
