R (on the application of Athos Solar GmbH and other companies) v Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Electricity – Supply. The Planning Court refused the renewed application for permission to proceed with a challenge to the defendant Secretary of State's decision to clarify that the requirement in a consultation document to have submitted a planning application by a cut-off date had meant submission of a valid planning application. Among other things, the Secretary of State had not erred in law by making explicit that which had originally been implicit.
