Forest of Dean District Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Town and Country Planning – Planning permission. The Queen's Bench Division dismissed a challenge by the claimant local authority to a decision by an inspector, appointed by the defendant Secretary of State, to grant planning permission for the stationing of residential caravans. The inspector had not failed to pay special regard to the desirability of preserving the settings of the listed buildings as required by s-66(1) of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 (the Listed Buildings Act). Nor had he misunderstood or misapplied the policy in paragraphs 131 – 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework.
