Camden Council says cuts to housing benefit could force 700 families out of London - but how are things looking in the rest of the capital?
First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don't like the idea.From @mitchwinehouse on Twitter:
I don't know this but what if Beyonce gave £100,000 to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there.From @mitchwinehouse on Twitter:
The government has claimed victory in a legal battle over plans for a high speed rail line between London and the north of England.
Today a judge rejected nine out of ten challenges brought by councils across the country including Camden.
However, there was one piece of good news for those living along the route. Paul Brand reports.
A High Court judge has ruled in favour of campaigners challenging the Government's handling of HS2, the high speed rail route through the Midlands.
Although he rejected all but one of five legal challenges, Mr. Justice Ouseley said the Government's consultation process was unlawful.
HS2 Ltd argue the high-speed rail will boost the economy:
"This project is vital for the economy and for our country going forward. We need the capacity , we need to improve the connectivity between our major cities. The judgement today gives us the green light to press on with the project and deliver that for our major cities."
A spokesman for the anti-HS2 group that was successful in its High Court case over the compensation consultation suggested that the Government should issue property bonds:
We don't have a value for what the compensation bill will be.
One way for the Government to help would be to issue property bonds to ensure the housing market remains liquid.
Existing owners may have to sell at a discount because of the blight.
But bonds could be issued to ensure the person buying would have a guarantee that the Government would make up the difference if the price fell below a certain level.
– HS2AA spokesman Richard Houghton
This could help prevent people being unable to sell and remaining trapped in their homes for a long period of time when a change in their circumstances, such as a change of job, required them to sell.
The Department for Transport today said that a previous pledge to provide "generous" HS2 compensation still stands.
A DfT spokesman said: "The Government's commitment to being generous has not changed. We want to provide generous compensation."
Camden and 14 other councils have lost their Judicial Review claim in the High Court. A Judge has ruled the government’s decision over the London to Birmingham line lawful, meaning the £33 billion scheme can proceed.
– Cllr Sarah Hayward, Camden Council Leader
“We are disappointed with this judgement and will continue to fight this fundamentally flawed scheme. We feel a poor decision has been made today, which fails to fully grapple with our case or the parliamentary process and demonstrates a misinterpretation of the law.
“We have said all along that the government and HS2 Limited have made no proper assessment of the disruption and damage High Speed 2 will cause."
Camden is the most affected area along the proposedLondon to Birmingham line of HS2, with £1billion damages estimated for theborough and hundreds of homes marked for demolition.
– Cllr Sarah Hayward, Camden Council Leader
“The Judge dismissed our claims because he felt that no “decisions” had been made to proceed with HS2. Yet clearly the government has taken the decision to go ahead with this scheme already. Moreover, the Judge did not say our Claim was without merit, simply that it was too early to make a decision.
"We felt we should challenge these now and not wait for more years of planning and public money to be wasted on this project."
Camden Council says it will appeal the ruling.
The government will have to reconsult on compensation for people who live along the route of the proposed HS2 after a High Court judge ruled in favour of an anti-HS2 protest group.
The HS2AA group financed the case after appealing to the community for help.
Mr. Justice Ouseley upheld the challenge to the government's proposed compensation scheme on the grounds its consultation process was so unfair as to be unlawful .
Four other challenges to the Secretary of State were rejected. Joe Rukin from HS2AA said he was happy that one of the group's claims was upheld, but that HS2 would still be a disaster for many in the Midlands.
HS2 Ltd told ITV News Central, they are delighted with the overall outcome and HS2 is now on track bringing a boost to the region's economy with a super fast link from Birmingham to London. It will cost £33bn.
Mr Justice Ouseley said "The Secretary of State did not provide consultees with enough information about the property compensation scheme. "
