Judicial review: promptness in non-EU law cases

In  R (Macrae) v County of Herefordshire District Council [2011] EWHC 2810 (Admin), the High Court dismissed an application for judicial review of a decision to grant planning permission for a dwelling due to lack of promptness.  

Note added 17.4.2012: The Court of Appeal disagreed with the High Court judge's exercise of his discretion.  The Court of Appeal's view was that the judge was wrong to refuse the appellant's application for judicial review on the ground of lack of promptness.
