Anthony Crean QC, working with Lee Gordon and Helen Robinson from Weightmans on behalf of Thornton Hall Hotel has successfully argued a judicial review claim before Kerr J in the Planning Court. The judgment was handed down on Friday 23rd March.

Mr Crean QC said “This case is important for two reasons. Firstly time. It is often (wrongly) said that the time limits for bringing an Action for Judicial Review are fixed and unmovable.  This claim was brought five years after the act complained about and demonstrates the flexibility of the Court’s discretion as to time.  

Secondly, it states the Law regarding mistakes. Mistakes will not be allowed to prevail over Executive decision making.

As ever, it all turns on understanding and correctly applying the law.”
