Restrictive Covenant Indemnity Insurance

Judicial Review


Planning Permission can sometimes be challenged through a process of Judicial Review. Through the Judicial Review, it is possible for a third party to challenge the process by which the decision was reached. In those cases there can be a delay in commencing the development, and an injunction stopping development can be obtained and, in extreme circumstances, a planning decision can be reversed. In all of those circumstances, the developer may suffer substantial losses.

In what circumstances is cover required?
