Carroll v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Town and country planning – Appeal to Minister against refusal of permission for development. The Planning Court, in allowing the claimant's appeal, quashed a decision of an inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State to grant planning permission for, among other things, change of use from Class B8 storage to Class C3 residential. In the circumstances, the inspector had failed to have proper regard to the material consideration of a possible reversion to Class B1 office use and had failed to give adequate reasons for his conclusions on that issue.
