Equiom (Isle of Man) Ltd and others v London Borough of Croydon

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimants challenged the defendant local planning authority's grant of outline planning permission and conservation area consent for redevelopment of a retail centre. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the claimants had not suffered any prejudice from non-disclosure of a viability report, nor had the authority's committee been misled or not given proper information. Further, nothing required a review mechanism to ensure a maximum of affordable housing and a sequential test to planning applications was not required.
