New Planning Court

  • Posted

A new Planning Court has come into operation.

The new Planning Court will replace the planning fast track in the Administrative Court. It will hear planning-related judicial reviews and statutory challenges, including claims relating to planning permissions, other development consents, the enforcement of planning control, EU environmental legislation and domestic transpositions, including assessments for development consents, habitats, waste and pollution control, compulsory purchase orders, village greens, national, regional or other planning policy documents.

So it looks like the Planning Court will become the key court for environmental law cases.
