Updated standard directions for 1954 Act claims in the Central London County Court

 

The updated template directions for unopposed, unopposed (low value) and opposed 1954 Act claims can be found here:

BLR1 Revised April 2021
BLR2 Revised April 2021
BLR3 Revised April 2021

In all cases, in order to avoid wasted court time as a result of hearings being listed which are not ultimately required, the directions stop at pre-trial review stage. The PLA has been advised that when the parties attend the PTR, if the matter is ready for trial they will be given a hearing date which will not be vacated, with the parties expected to work towards the hearing date and not request further adjournments. If, at the PTR, the matter is not ready to be listed for trial, a further PTR will be listed.
