Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire, Regina (on The Application of) v Hallam Land Management Ltd and Others: Admn 27 May 2014

The claimant challenged a planning permission for a substantial development, and in particular the terms of the associated section 106 agreement. The claimant was concerened that the terms might allow a sufficient development to required additional resources from the claimant without making a sufficiently unconditional commitment for financial support.
Held: The request for judicial review was refused: ‘looked at objectively, there are features of the way the police contribution in this case was dealt with in the section 106 agreement that are not very satisfactory and, as I have said, some legitimate criticisms seem to me to be open to the formulation of the trigger mechanism. I rather suspect that, irrespective of the outcome of this case, the issue of the timing of the police contributions will have to be re-visited before the development proceeds too far to ensure that those who are considering purchasing properties on the development will have the reassurance that it will be properly and efficiently policed. However, that does not amount to, or evidence the need for, a conclusion at this stage that what was agreed between the Defendant and the developers was irrational or that there was anything unfair about the way the Defendant dealt with the issue.’
