Bishop's Stortford Civic Federation v East Hertfordshire District Council and others

Town and country planning – Planning permission. The claimant sought judicial review of the decision of the defendant local authority to grant planning permission to the interested parties. It contended that the committee had considered misleading remarks of a party not a member of the committee and had been denied the opportunity to comment on further documents. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that nothing T had said had flawed the decision of the committee and it had exercised its discretion in a perfectly proper manner. Further, there had been no unfairness with respect to the further documents.
