Planning Law Update - September 2019

Whilst no new planning legislation was passed this month there have been a number of new court and appeal decisions issued as well as new guidance published. In the High Court; a case for a judicial review application on EIA grounds was dismissed and clarification given that an extension of time under a prior approvals application can only be agreed where there was no stated deadline for determination.

The Government has produced updated guidance on the Administrative Court Judicial Review proceedings and electronic filings and new guidance has been issued to help practitioners preparing a Statement of Case and Common Ground submissions. The Welsh Government also launched a consultation on a new National Development Framework, which will close on 1 November 2019. We update below on recent planning changes.
