A judicial review hearing of the decision to build a visitor centre at the foot of Clifford's Tower in York will take place next month.

The plans, which were submitted by English Heritage, have been approved by City of York Council.

More than 3,000 people have signed a petition with campaigners saying the development would be 'ugly beyond belief' and 'destroys the view of Clifford tower and the hill.'

A judicial review hearing will take place at Leeds Crown Court on Wednesday 3 May.
