Allen v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant challenged the first defendant Secretary of State's decision, dismissing his appeal against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal to permit non-compliance with a condition previously attached to earlier permission. The Planning Court, in allowing the application, held that the Secretary of State had failed to give adequate reasons for his decision and had failed to grapple with a principle issue adequately.
