Press Release

10 July 2019

Court of Appeal finds in favour of Council

The Court of Appeal has upheld the decision by Fareham Borough Council to grant planning permission for a replacement Lidl foodstore at the Apex Centre, Speedfields Park, Newgate Lane.

Mr Kevin Arrowsmith was appealing against the decision of the High Court which refused to grant him permission to apply for a judicial review of the Council’s planning decision.

On the 9th July, the Court of Appeal announced that Mr Arrowsmith’s application for permission to appeal against the High Court’s decision had been refused.  The Order made by the Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Lindblom states that ‘the judge was right to refuse permission to apply for judicial review, for the reasons she gave.’

In previously refusing to grant permission to apply for a judicial review, the High Court also ordered Mr Arrowsmith to pay the Council costs of £5,000.

Councillor Walker, Chairman of the Planning Committee said: ‘I am pleased that the Court of Appeal was satisfied that the decision to grant planning permission for the replacement Lidl’s foodstore was correctly made, and accordingly the decision has been upheld.”
