Is There A Time Limit For Applying?

Your Claim Form must be filed with the Administrative Court promptly and in any event not later than three months after the grounds upon which the Claim is based first arose (CPR Part 54.4). It is possible to apply to the Court for an extension of Time and that Application must be made on the same Form which you use for the Application itself. However, where a claim involves a challenge to an EU Directive, promptness is no longer a pre-condition. In normal cases, however, the application needs to be lodged promptly and, where possible, even well before the three months have expired. But be warned, in Planning Cases, the time period is generally 6 weeks. There are other specific cases where time limits are even shorter, so take great care.
