We thought it important to let residents & other interested bodies know that now that Merton’s planning committee have passed the Ravensbury Garages application, there is only 6 weeks to submit the case to court for a judicial review.
We believe that the legal costs (plus VAT) required to begin the legal challenge are initially around £3-6k.
The total costs to get to High Court are expected to be around £10-15k.
If the case goes further, there will be further costs, obviously.
If the case is lost, then costs would also need to be paid to the other party.
Submitting within the 6 weeks after a decision has been made (ie now) is also considered to be an 11th hour application.
Interested parties who would like to contribute towards a judicial review, should contact us on: Ravensbury.Grove@gmail.com
