Is there is a precedent schedule of costs form in relation to judicial review proceedings?

Civil Procedure Rules

Civil Procedure Rule 54 (CPR 54) contains the applicable rules regarding judicial review. CPR 54.8(2) sets out the following:

'In principle a defendant who states grounds of opposition in the acknowledgment of service is entitled to be awarded the costs of so doing if permission is refused. In order to avoid having to make a separate application later, the defendant's application for costs should be included in the acknowledgment form: R (on the application of Leach) v Commissioner for Local Administration'

Although you will note that the commentary in the Green Book goes on to state that the ‘acknowledgment of service’ should be accompanied by a schedule, it does not set out what form this schedule should take. Further, the CPR do not provide for a specific form of schedule for Judicial Review proceedings. We refer you to our Practice Note Detailed assessment—bill of costs which has links to Precedents
