R (on the application of Carter) v City and County of Swansea

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission for the development of a wind farm and an access track. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the authority had had full regard to the development plan and the priority which should be given to its provisions, and had applied the two-stage analysis proposed by the claimant. Further, the conditions imposed appeared to satisfy the applicable test and no positive evidence that a condition could be met was required.
