O'Connor v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant challenged the decision of the first defendant Secretary of State to dismiss his appeals against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal to grant planning permission and its issue of an enforcement notice. The Planning Court, in allowing the appeal, held, amongst other things, that the Secretary of State's conclusion about flood risk had been unreasonable and/or had failed to take account of material considerations.
