Dartford Borough Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Appeal to Minister against refusal of permission for development. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division dismissed an appeal from the local planning authority against the grant of planning permission for a change of use of land to a private gypsy and traveller caravan site comprising one mobile home and one touring caravan on the basis that the land in question was 'previously developed land' under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). Such an interpretation accorded with the clear words of the NPPF.
