Cheshire East Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant local planning authority applied for an order to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, allowing the second defendant's appeal against the claimant's refusal of planning permission and granting planning permission for 94 dwellings. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the inspector had dealt with, and had given adequate reasons for rejecting, the claimant's central argument. He had not erred in failing to exclude housing development from his assessment of sustainable development, and had considered arts 12 and 16 of the Council Directive (EEC) 92/43.
