Town and country planning – Refusal of planning permission. Court of Session: Refusing an appeal against the decision of a reporter, who refused a developer's appeal against a local authority's refusal of planning permission on the basis that the grant of planning permission in principle would be premature and undermine the process for approval of the new local development plan, the court rejected contentions that the reporter had relied on new information without giving the appellant an opportunity to comment; that the decision was based on a material error; that the reporter failed to give proper, adequate and intelligible reasons for her decision; and that her conclusions on prematurity were unreasonable, perverse and irrational.
