Forestry Commission and another v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimants applied to quash the first defendant Secretary of State's decision to refuse them planning permission for development on land in the Green Belt and an area of special county value. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the development had been inappropriate in the Green Belt without very special circumstances sufficient to outweigh the harm to the Green Belt and any other harm. Further, that had to have been clear to the claimants as the reason their application had failed.
