The CHASE legal challenge will resume at the High Court this afternoon, Monday May 27 where Mr Justice David Barniville will hear closing remarks. The matter is listed for 2.00 pm in Court 29 at the Four Courts.
The case opened at the High Court on Tuesday 19 March before Judge Barniville, who is in charge of the Strategic Infrastructure Development list of cases at the High Court. The case continued as scheduled until Friday afternoon, 29 March, and at that stage was listed for some extra hours required to conclude.
CHASE alleges that the Board acted unlawfully in the way it dealt with the planning application and in how it arrived at its decision. Permission to bring the case was given by the High Court last July following the May 2018 grant of planning. The Board’s Planning Inspector had recommended refusal of permission, the third senior Board Inspector to do so since 2004.
CHASE is represented by Noonan Linehan Carroll Coffey Solicitors and by Maurice Collins SC, David Holland SC and Alan Keating BL.
