Town and country planning – Permission for development. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed an appeal against the dismissal of an application under s 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. In the circumstances, and in view of the way in which the appeal under s 78 of the Act had been presented to the inspector of the second respondent Secretary of State, the judge's decision had been correct. The inspector had not erred when determining the effects of the proposed development on the character and appearance of the area, including a listed building, notwithstanding the fact that the application had been for outline planning permission, with all matters reserved.
