Judicial Review of Planning Permissions - A Thing of the Past?

Posted: Monday, 24 June 2013 @ 11:40

The Civil Procedure (Amendment No. 4) Rules 2013 (SI 2013/1412) come into effect on 1 July 2013 and reduce the time limit for judicial review applications in planning matters from 3 months to 6 weeks.

Bearing in mind the complex issues that may give rise to a challenge to a planning application by way of judicial review, will it be possible in practice to bring an application within the new time limit?

From the point of view of property developers, this is clearly good news, however, as the delay in commencement of development caused by waiting to see whether an application for judicial review is to be made has now been halved.
