Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please can you advise the total costs to date, legal costs and time costs spent listed by all States of Jersey Departments, in dealing with the [Third Party Appellant] v Planning Minister case which has been subject to two Royal Court actions so far.
The direct legal costs paid to the Third Party Appellant and their legal team by the Department of the Environment (Department) in relation to the first Royal Court appeal are as follows:
£575 to Third Party Appellant
£8,550 to Viberts law firm
To date, there have been no direct legal costs paid by the Department in association to the second Royal Court appeal.
The Department has not incurred any other legal or court costs associated to this matter. The Department and other States of Jersey department do not record officer time associated with individual planning appeals and is therefore unable to provide further information about this expenditure.
In relation to the States of Jersey Law Officers' Department (LOD) involvement in this matter and associated costs, the LOD is not a scheduled public authority and is not required to release information under the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
