Protected Expenses Order Application

Press Release - June 18th 2015

STEPAL's application for a Protected Expenses Order (PEO) to cover its appeal against the court's findings in the case against Fife Council's planning decision to locate the replacement Madras College at Pipelands was heard at the Court of Session on 18th June. Lord Drummond Young rejected Fife Council's opposition to the PEO for the next stage of the proceedings and granted STEPAL's motion limiting its liability for Fife Council's and Hermiston Securities' costs in the event of an unsuccessful outcome. Costs for the PEO motion were awarded against Fife Council and Hermiston.
Mary Jack on behalf of STEPAL welcoming this result said "This will enable the challenge to continue to the next stage and ensure that the previous decision is reviewed. It means that STEPAL can continue its campaign to achieve a better  outcome for Madras College and its pupils in the knowledge that the full costs of the action can be anticipated and budgeted for. STEPAL's fundraising will continue. Members of the community who share STEPAL's vision of a well located first class school and the prevention of serious damage to St Andrews' green belt are invited to contribute to the campaign funds. All donations will be warmly welcomed."
