Barbudan residents John Mussington and Jacquline Frank are continuing their challenge against the construction of a runway for the international airport on the island.

Their appeal has been allowed by the Privy Council, enabling them to re-file their case for a Judicial Review.

This decision has inspired other Barbudans to bring their own legal challenges against the government, particularly concerning development projects they believe may harm their environment and livelihoods.

The Privy Council’s ruling, made on February 27, 2024, following a hearing on November 8, 2023, may have far-reaching implications, potentially opening the door to more litigation.
