Article by Jonathan Lewis – Public Procurement—principles governing extensions of the limitation period (Access for Living v London Borough of Lewisham)

Lexis Nexis PSL expert panel case analysis by Jonathan Lewis.

Mrs Justice Jefford struck out a claim brought by Access for Living (AFL) against the London Borough of Lewisham (the Council) under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015) on the basis that it was time-barred. AFL had issued its claim within the standstill period (which the Council had extended) but outside the 30- day limitation period. Its lawyers admitted to their error in conflating the standstill extension with an extension to the limitation period. AFL was unable to persuade Jefford J that there was a ‘good reason’ to extend the limitation period.
