R (on the application of Harvey) v Mendip District Council

Town and country planning – Appeal. Policy DP12 in the local plan had been clear in its meaning which was to the effect that a development to provide affordable homes in the relevant area would only comply if it met the clearly identified need set out in the 2013 assessment of five affordable homes and no more. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division accordingly allowed the appeal against the grant by the local planning authority of planning permission for six affordable homes and one open market dwelling house.
