R (on the application of Ash Parish Council) v Guildford Borough Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of outline planning permission for the development of up to 400 dwellings and full planning permission for the change of use from agricultural land to use as a suitable alternative natural greenspace. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that, reading the officer report as a whole and in the context of oral advice given to members, it could not be said that the members had been significantly misled by the advice given to them.
