Gold Kebab Ltd v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Planning permission. The claimant company applied to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the defendant Secretary of State, dismissing its appeal against a refusal to vary a condition of planning permission to allow an extension of opening hours for a restaurant. The Administrative Court, in refusing to quash the decision, held that there had clearly been evidence of complaints before the inspector and he had not failed to take into account extended licensing hours as a material consideration.
