Dentons successfully acts for Sainsbury’s in planning permission judicial review
Dentons has successfully acted for Sainsbury’s in defending a judicial review seeking to challenge planning permission for the supermarket’s new store in Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire.
The application for permission was dismissed by the newly formed Planning Court on 22 May 2014 as ‘totally without merit’, slightly less than four weeks from Sainsbury’s serving its grounds resisting the challenge.
Sainsbury’s new store in Whittlesey will comprise some 5,306m² (GEA) and also provide a new Country Park and shuttle bus service to the town centre.
Having been part of the team involved in securing planning permission for the scheme, Dentons advised Sainsbury’s on the subsequent judicial review of the planning permission, including the new procedures for the recently formed Planning Court, in particular, to dispose of the challenge as quickly as possible.
The Dentons team comprised Michele Vas and Katie Scuoler.
