R (on the application of Davies) v Carmarthenshire County Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant issued judicial review proceedings, seeking to quash the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission to the interested party for a wind turbine. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that the reasoning of the screening opinion was inadequate and it had failed to address the question properly of the impact which had had to be considered. As that step of the process had been legally flawed, there was no discretion not to quash the planning permission.
