R (on the application of Mynnyd Y Gwynt Ltd) v Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The defendant Secretary of State's decision, refusing planning consent for the construction of an onshore wind farm, was not unlawful, nor had the judge's careful review of the decision in the claimant's application for judicial review been wrong. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the Secretary of State had been entitled to accept advice and conclude that she had not had the information necessary to enable her to grant the application.
