R. (on the application of Tarian Hafren Severn Shield Cyf) v Marine Management Organisation

Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court) [2022] EWHC 683 (Admin)

The application for judicial review concerned a challenge to a variation to a marine licence approved under the Marine and Coastal Act 2009 (“MCAA 2009”). The main issue was whether the power to vary a marine licence under the MCAA 2009 can be used to authorise an “activity” not already included within the licence of which variation is being sought.

Sasha Blackmore and Matthew Dale-Harris acted for the Defendant (instructed by Browne Jacobson).

The judgment can be found here.
