Posted August 29th, 2019 in costs, judicial review, news, planning by sally

Planning analysis: In refusing permission to apply for statutory review, the Court of Appeal held that there was no limit to the number of parties to which claimants could be liable to in costs and that the court was correct not to limit further the Aarhus cap on the basis that the claim failed at the permission stage. Nevertheless, successful defendants and/or interested parties may only recover reasonable and proportionate costs. Written by Howard Leithead, barrister at No5 Chambers.
