The Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) have featured a case study on the recent Askham Bog Planning Inquiry, written by Emma-Louise Fenelon.

Planning permission was sought to develop housing near Askham Bog, a site of special scientific interest on the outskirts of York described by Sir David Attenborough as irreplaceable. Emma-Louise Fenelon and Darragh Coffey were instructed by ELF to represent the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust on a pro-bono basis. They successfully advocated for the preservation of this ancient site, home to 2925 non microbial species, and the appeal was dismissed.
