Highland Council v Scottish Ministers and another; Ross Estates Company v Scottish Ministers and another

Town and country planning – Planning permission – Waste to energy plant. Court of Session: In appeals by a planning authority and an objector against a reporter's decision to grant planning permission, subject to conditions, for a waste to energy plant, the court held that a condition concerning waste imported from outwith Highland area was invalid because it enlarged the permission beyond that which was applied for and was considered at the inquiry, that because the condition was not capable of being severed from the rest of the decision the inquiry would have to be reopened, but it need deal only with that condition.
