A legal challenge has now been lodged against the Council’s decision to set up the HDV (the demolition company).
A huge amount of work has gone into bringing this case before the Courts – and special thanks are due to Gordon Peters for this.
This could take several months to resolve. In the meantime we can help by spreading awareness about just how damaging the HDV, demolition and social cleansing all are.
