Public Law

Judicial review actions lodged from today onwards will be subject to the new 3-month time limit and permission requirement introduced by section 89 of the Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014.

Our Planning team have also noted the significance of today – click through to Neil’s post for a link to an advice note on how planning JRs might be affected.

If you’ve raised a JR today, or are dealing with a potential JR to be lodged in the near future, we’d be interested in hearing if and how the new rules have affected your strategy (we do wonder how many petitions were lodged on Friday to ensure the old rules applied!). Please feel free to share in the comments.
