R (on the application of Flemming and others being representatives of Oaksey Conservation group) v Wiltshire Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimants sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant to the interested party of planning permission to remove conditions of a planning permission, which limited the use of eight buildings to holiday lets. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that, whilst there was no express finding of conflict with the development plan in the officers' report, the officers' approach, which had been to examine the impacts of the development proposed, could not be said to have significantly misled the members. Further, the committee had been aware of all material considerations.
