Oates v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Enforcement notice. There was no basis for saying that the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State had erred in having found that there had been new buildings, consistent with the description and requirements of an enforcement notice issued to the claimant by the second defendant local planning authority. The Planning Court, in dismissing the claimant's challenge to the inspector's decision, further held that the inspector's finding that a requirement of the notice was too vague did not mean that the notice had been a nullity.
