This chapter considers various factors that may prevent claimants from obtaining relief via judicial review. It first discusses the provisions of the ‘Pre-Action Protocol’ regarding court permission for judicial review before considering the requirement to exhaust alternative remedies. It then reviews the time limits for those who wish to use the judicial review procedure, focusing on the requirements of Senior Courts Act 1981 and Civil Procedure Rules Parts 3 and 54. It also explores questions of ‘prematurity’ and ‘ripeness’, along with the courts' general approach to the exclusion of judicial review and the role of standing, or locus standi, in initiating judicial review proceedings. The chapter concludes with an overview of the application of the ‘no difference’ principle in dealing with restriction of remedies.
