R (on the application of Wet Finishing Works Ltd) v Taunton Deane Borough Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The defendant local planning authority had breached its duty to act fairly by having entered into a new agreement under s 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 with the interested party only, leaving out the claimant, which had been a party to an earlier agreement. As the criteria in s 31(2A) of the Senior Courts Act 1981 were not met, the Planning Court quashed the planning permission granted to the interested party.
