Thanks, ***** ***** see my query above? Just wondering what you want to know as the building has passed planning and can therefore go ahead.
Well presumably the injunction would be pending a judicial review? An injunction is not an end in itself so you would still need an underlying legal case against the planning being granted. The only possible basis I can see would be you argue it was granted incorrectly under say the Wednesbury unreasonableness grounds of judicial review. Judicial review is a type of court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body. In other words, judicial reviews are a challenge to the way in which a decision has been made, rather than the rights and wrongs of the conclusion reached. The issue you have there though is that, it is not really concerned with the conclusions of that process and whether those were ‘right’, as long as the right procedures have been followed. The court will not substitute what it thinks is the ‘correct’ decision. Therefore, you may go through the time and expense of bringing this action and it be determined at judicial review that the procedure was correct there was nothing so unreasonable in the decision the conclusion to grant planning should not have been reached. Even if you win, the public body will be able to make the same decision again, so long as it does so in a lawful way. Therefore, I do not see this as a sensible course to go down it may be the last throw of the dice but likely to little avail. I trust this assists you in understanding your position however, should you have any supplementary inquiries, do not hesitate to ask and I will look to clarify or expand on my previous response.
