A preliminary hearing will take place in London on November 28th wih a two-day hearing being given a slot of some time between April 10th and May 15th 2018.

The Coventry Telegraph are running a joint statement from Councillor George Duggins, leader of Coventry City Council; and Cllr Gary Ridley, Leader of the Opposition Conservative Party which reads “We are aware of the preliminary hearing at the Court of Appeal later this month and remain confident that we have a robust defence to all the claims and that the decisions the Council took on October 7, 2014 were entirely lawful.

“Until the hearing on November 28, we will not be making any further comment on the case.”
