M4 Legal Challenge

Wildlife celebrities Kate Humble and Iolo Williams are supporting the campaign against the new M4 through part of the Gwent Levels, one of Wales’ most important wildlife habitats.  A legal challenge by Friends of the Earth Cymru, supported by the Gwent Wildlife Trust,  means that a judge will now examine whether the Welsh Government unlawfully limited the range of reasonable alternatives by considering only three similar options south of Newport.  Campaigners claim that insufficient consideration was given to Prof Stuart Cole’s Blue Route based on the Newport Southern Distributor road.
