Whitgift appeal dismissed by Court of Appeal

 

The Court of Appeal has refused the Whitgift Trust permission to appeal the dismissal of its claim for judicial review of planning permission and conservation area consent for the Whitgift redevelopment.

Planning permission and conservation area consent for redevelopment of the shopping centre and surrounding land were granted by the council in February last year.

In November last year a judge in the High Court dismissed the Trust’s claim for judicial review of the Council’s decision to grant permission and conservation area consent and refused leave to appeal.

The Trust subsequently asked the Court of Appeal to grant permission to appeal on limited grounds and following an initial refusal, a hearing was held yesterday at which permission to appeal was again refused.

Yesterday’s announcement means that the Trust’s rights to appeal the High Court’s decision have been exhausted.

“The council is delighted that the Court of Appeal has refused the Whitgift Trust permission to appeal against the High Court’s decision.

“This is good news and confirms that planning processes were followed correctly when granting permission and leaves both the planning permission and conservation area consent intact.”

Councillor Tony Newman, leader of the council
