Judicial Review

Judicial Review

If you disagree with a decision made by a public body which could have a big effect upon you or your business then contact us for advice.

You could ask the High Court to review the decision. First, you must ask the Court’s permission to seek judicial review and, crucially, you have to act fast. An application for permission has to be lodged with the Court at the earliest opportunity – within three months of the decision that you want to challenge and within just six weeks if it is a planning decision.

A High Court Judge will consider the application and decide whether to grant you permission. The Judge will usually make his decision after reading the application and without a Court Hearing.

If permission is granted then a Hearing will take place at the High Court some time later.

The High Court is an extremely busy place and it can take a considerable period of time for a Hearing to take place. In the meantime, the public body might have done precisely what you wanted to stop happening and it could be irreversible. In those circumstances it will be necessary to additionally make an application for an injunction at the same time as lodging the permission application.
