Scoop wins case against North Lanarkshire Council to protect the future of Antonine Shopping Centre, Cumbernauld
Scoop is delighted to announce that it has won the case against North Lanarkshire Council following their decision to grant planning permission for an out of town development, which would have harmed the existing Antonine Shopping Centre in Cumbernauld.
In late 2019, North Lanarkshire Council resolved to grant planning permission for an out of town development. The consensus was that this decision was not only contrary to Policy and National Guidelines, but that the application had also been processed incorrectly. A decision was taken without appropriate supporting evidence submitted.
Consequently, Scoop petitioned the courts for a Judicial Review on this decision, which resulted in the courts reversing the planning permission and awarding costs against the Council.
