Gladman Developments Ltd v Stafford Borough Council

Town and country planning – Planning authority. The claimant developer applied, under s 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, to quash and, alternatively, remit to the defendant local planning authority, parts of its development plan. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the inspector had been entitled, on the evidence, to find that the full housing need of the authority had been objectively assessed in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework and the National Planning Policy Guidance. Further, the authority and the inspector had considered market signals and other market indicators, as they had been required to do by national guidance.
