Eversheds comment: Planning court would be good for UK economy

  • United Kingdom

    06-09-2013

    In response to news that UK ministers are considering setting up a specialist court to fast-track judicial reviews on planning applications, Stuart Andrews, partner at global law firm Eversheds, comments:

    “At Eversheds, we have been calling for a specialist court of this type for some time as it would ease delays that hold up major building projects. The current administrative structure simply doesn’t allow for important planning and environmental cases to be resolved in a timely and effective manner. Not only is the current system bad for the construction sector and wider economy, it has opened the door to tactical claims aimed at frustrating the delivery of important infrastructure projects.”
