Nottingham City Council v Calverton Parish Council

Sunday – Dies non juridicus. The applicant city council applied to strike out the respondent parish council's claim to quash its development plan document. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that, as the last day of the six week period for making the claim, under s 113(4) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, had fallen on a Sunday, the six-week period was to be treated as expiring on the next day when the court office had been open. Accordingly, the claim had been brought within time.
