R (on the application of Champion) v North Norfolk District Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The defendant local authority granted the interested party planning permission with conditions attached. The judge quashed that decision on the basis that the grant of planning permission and the imposition of conditions had been inconsistent. The local authority and the interested party appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appeal, held that there had been no inconsistency between the two positions adopted by the authority. Further, the authority had been in the position to properly assess the likely effect of the development and it had considered all relevant environmental effects.
