Single mother beats the developers

A single mother who took her battle against a huge property development to the House of Lords has won a landmark case that will force the government to create a new law that will always be linked to her name.

Diane Barker spent seven years fighting her local council in a bid to block construction of a cinema complex outside her south London flat. Lawyers say the Law Lords' decision in her favour will give more power to ordinary residents who want to oppose major projects, enabling them to force developers to measure the impact of major projects on the local environment.
