Enquiry

When is the appropriate time to challenge the decision made on Rookery South

Advice given

I confirm that the time limits for judicial review are set out in section 118 of the Planning Act 2008, which indicates that such proceedings must be brought within the period of six weeks beginning with the day on which an order granting development consent is published or (if later) the day on which statement of reasons is published.
The Commission's understanding is that in cases where special parliamentary procedure applies the publication of the order, for the purposes of s118 of the Planning Act 2008, will follow the special parliamentary procedure. Information about the order's progress through the special parliamentary procedure will be placed on the Commission?s website.
We advise any party considering a legal challenge to seek legal advice.
