BASC has made a formal application to court to become an interested party in Wild Justice’s judicial review challenging the general licences that have been issued by Natural Resources Wales.
Registering as an interested party will allow BASC to actively engage with the legal argument surrounding the Welsh general licences.
BASC’s application explains how our members could be directly affected by any outcome of the proceedings, and as a broad membership association BASC has an important role to play in providing evidence to the court.
Steve Griffiths, BASC’s director for Wales, said: “Wild Justice is insisting on continuing with its legal challenge against general licences in Wales despite this time of national crisis. In order to ensure that there is a fit for purpose and future proofed licensing system, BASC has been given no choice but to seek to involve itself in court proceedings now.
