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

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal by the appellant against the decision by the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, that the judge hearing the appellant's judicial review claim had wrongly decided that the relevant committee of the respondent local authority had been correct in its conclusion that there had been no relevant risk requiring appropriate assessment (AA) or an environmental impact assessment (EIA) in relation to a proposed development by an interested party which could have led to the pollution of a nearby river which was a special area of conservation.
