In the meantime Portsmouth issued with HMRC winding-up petition
Developer Taylor Wimpey was originally granted planning permission to build 355 homes in 2007. But campaigners, concerned about flooding and sewerage capacity, were granted a judicial review. However, His Honour Judge Milwyn Jarman QC dismissed all four challenges brought. The judicial review claim was issued last year by protester and cockle-picker Thomas Hughes, Llanrhidian, in Gower. Mr Hughes argued he had lost his home and earnings of Â£500,000 over a decade as a result of mass cockle deaths in the Loughor Estuary.
