R (on the application of FCC Environment (UK) Ltd) v Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant's claim for judicial review in respect of an order granting development consent, made under the Planning Act 2008, in relation to the construction of a resource recovery facility was dismissed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the claimant's appeal, held, inter alia, that, since the parliamentary joint committee had reported on the order without amendment, there had been no change in the development for which consent had been granted which might have led to the need for a further assessment of its effects on the environment.
