Kimpton Vale v. Bord Pleanala

In a judgment on 4 October, Hogan J ruled that the Board was entitled to security for costs against the Applicant. The Court rejected the Applicant’s argument that S50B of the Planning and Development Act (amended by the 2010 Planning Act) meant the Board was never entitled to recover costs and therefore could not obtain security, and held instead that in a case with no EIA component, the usual rules on costs would apply.
