Good Energy Generation Ltd v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The inspector and the first defendant Secretary of State had been entitled to conclude that no weight could be attached to a community investment scheme and reduced electricity tariff in determining the claimant's appeal against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal of planning permission for a wind farm development, as they had not been material considerations. The Planning Court, in dismissing the claimant's challenge under s 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, further held that they had not failed to have proper regard to the newly adopted local plan and the authority's supplementary planning document.
