Government's response

The government has sought views on a package of measures to stem the growth in applications for judicial reviews and has now published its response with measures including:

  • Introducing a £215 court fee for anyone seeking a hearing in person after their initial written judicial review application has been turned down.

  • Banning people from seeking a hearing in person if their initial written application has been ruled as totally without merit.

  • Halving the time limit for applying for a judicial review of a planning decision from three months to six weeks.

  • Reducing the time limit for applying for a judicial review of a procurement decision from three months to four weeks.
