Greaves and another v Boston Borough Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimants sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission for the installation of a wind turbine. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the claimants' criticisms as to the enforceability of a condition on the noise level could not be sustained. Further, there was no public policy basis upon which the parties' settlement ought not to be enforced and, in any event, the claimants lacked standing, having sold their neighbouring property.
