Mordue v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

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 to grant planning permission for the erection of a free-standing wind turbine and associated development. The Planning Court, in allowing the application, held that, although the inspector had considered the harm to the listed buildings affected in accordance with para 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework, that, of itself, was insufficient to demonstrate that he had attached considerable weight to such harm.
