Hopkins Homes Limited v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant applied to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, dismissing his planning appeal for residential development, associated access and landscaping. The Planning Court, in allowing the application, held that the inspector had misinterpreted and misapplied para 49 of the National Planning Policy Framework in relation to the policies in the local plan, he had erred in assuming that the physical limits boundary had been defined in the local plan and he had failed to assess the significance of a heritage asset.
