Lisle-Mainwaring v Carroll; Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government v Carroll

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The judge had erred in her conclusion that the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State had been entitled to conclude that the grant of planning permission to the third defendant for residential use would result in planning harm. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, also held that the case was not exceptional, such that an alternative use for the property had been a material consideration and the inspector had made no material error of law.
