In Hillingdon LBC v SoS for Transport [2017] EWHC 121 (Admin) Cranston J has held that on a proper construction of Section 13(1) of the Planning Act 2008, a legal challenge relating to a National Policy Statement could be brought only in the six-week period after the statement was designated or published. The Court did not have jurisdiction to hear the claimants’ application for judicial review of a decision of the Secretary of State for Transport to select for inclusion in a draft National Policy Statement a proposal for a third runway at Heathrow Airport.
