Minerva (Wandsworth) Ltd v Greenland Ram (London) Ltd

Contract – Breach. The Chancery Division held that the defendant company had wrongly prevented the claimant company from continuing with a construction project, by refusing to enter into the necessary agreement with the local authority to allow the project to proceed. The claimant had been entitled to submit an application for planning permission when it had done, and the defendant had been in breach of contract in preventing the work from going ahead.
