Mohamed v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Enforcement notice. The appellant appealed against the decision of the inspector appointed by the first respondent Secretary of State, upholding an enforcement notice issued by the second respondent local planning authority, alleging that she had erected a dwelling without planning permission. The Planning Court, in allowing the appeal in part, held that the inspector's decision letter had failed to grapple with the question of what operations had been carried out. However, he had not erred by failing to consider whether some steps short of complete demolition would suffice to remedy the breach of planning control.
