First High Court PSPO Challenge declares part of Richmond’s dog walking PSPO invalid

Date: April 12, 2018

2TG’s Martin Porter QC and Jessica van der Meer have been successful in the first PSPO challenge to reach the High Court. They challenged London Borough of Richmond’s decision to restrict dog walking across its lands. Today Mrs Justice May declared Richmond’s PSPO partially invalid. This case will have important consequences for future PSPO challenges. This is a hot button issue given Ealing Council’s decision this week to use a PSPO to ban protestors outside an abortion clinic.
