R (on the application of Friends of the Earth Ltd and another) v North Yorkshire County Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The Planning Court dismissed the claimants' application for judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's decision to grant planning permission to the interested party to carry out fracking. The authority had not unlawfully failed to take into account an assessment of the material indirect/secondary/cumulative climate change impacts and had not misdirected itself in law that it could not require the provision of a financial bond in relation to any long-term environmental pollution impacts.
