Markets Judicial Review Successful

Pragma director, David Worthington MRTPI, acted as Expert Witness in the recently successful judicial review of a decision of Belfast City Council to grant planning permission for a multi-storey office block.  The challenge was brought by one of the residents of a city centre residential area and sought to challenge the decision on a number of grounds including planning matters.

Engaged by O’Muirigh Solicitors, Pragma provided a series of reports and other expert witness evidence in relation to the complex planning aspects of the case, specifically in relation to the development plan, its status and policy content. ┬áReports also included evidence in respect to the handling of the case by the Council and the weight attributed to certain planning matters.
