Forster v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant challenged the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State to grant planning permission for, among other things, the demolition of a single-storey former nightclub and the erection of a three-storey building with commercial and residential uses. The Planning Court dismissed the claimant's six grounds of challenge, including that the inspector had failed to take into account, as a material consideration, the harm the development would do to the viability of the claimant's tavern.
