DLA Delivery Ltd v Baroness Cumberlege of Newick and another

Town and Country Planning – Permission for development. The Secretary of State had been correct to concede that he had erred in issuing inconsistent decisions as to whether a planning policy was up-to-date and effective. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that although the previous decision had not been placed before the Secretary of State by the parties, it was nevertheless unreasonable for the Secretary of State not to have had regard to the previous decision before determining the present appeal.
