Councillors in Louth have agreed to start a judicial review against the process taken by East Lindsey District Council to sell Lincolnshire's only surviving cattle market.
The decision will see Louth Town Council working in partnership with the community interest company, Keep Louth Special to start a judicial review into ELDC's process in selling Louth Cattle Market to Asda.
The town council also claim that the cattle market could actually be under the ownership of the Louth Mayor not East Lindsey District Council if it can be proved that the 1848 Louth Markets and Improvement Act was not dissolved following the introduction of the 1974 Local Government Act.
If that act still stands then essentially the district council do not own the cattle market. It is in fact, the responsibility of the Mayor.
"This could alter what happen in Louth for years to come.
"The judicial review is about the decision making process. We believe that process is flawed and having spoken to the barrister, he believes exactly the same.
"Like everything in life there are no guarantees. There is always a chance you can lose in the court room.
"Keep Louth Special has subsequent funds already in place pledged by members of the public before they have even invited donations.
"This includes £10,000 by one businessman and £1,000 from another and they have not even asked for any money yet. They could possibly reach the target themselves."
