Singhal UK Ltd v Secretary Of State For Communities And Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Appeal to Minister against refusal of permission for development. The Queen's Bench Division granted the applicant leave to bring proceedings in the High Court to appeal against the decision of the first respondent Secretary of State through his planning inspector who had dismissed the applicant's appeal against an enforcement notice issued by the second respondent planning authority. It was held that the inspector had been wrong to believe that the applicant had not advanced the rights within the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 in respect of one of its grounds. The result of that had been that rights were available to the applicant in certain circumstances that would have allowed the rebuild of the premises in question exactly as had been done by the applicant.
