Update from High Court hearing regarding Silva Lodge Kennels
05 April 2017

Representatives from Basildon Council attended the High Court today (Wednesday, 5 April) for a committal hearing for contempt.

The council is taking action after the terms of an existing High Court injunction, banning further development at Silva Lodge Kennels, in Hovefields Avenue, Wickford, were breached.

The defendants have also applied for permission to vary the terms of the injunction.

Following submissions by the defendants, the judge has agreed to adjourn the case on humanitarian grounds until next week.

The hearing will resume on Tuesday, 11 April.

Basildon Council remains committed to enforcing planning law in the interests of its residents and will continue to defend its position vigorously within the existing legal framework.
