Oxfordshire County Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant local planning authority applied to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, holding that administrative fees it had claimed for monitoring obligations agreed under s 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 did not comply with reg 122 of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010, SI 2010/948. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the inspector had been entitled to conclude that a contribution to the administration and monitoring costs had not been 'necessary' to make the development acceptable in planning terms. Further, the inspector had given adequate reasons.
