R (on the application of Hockley and another) v Essex County Council

Town and Country Planning – Permission for development. The Queen's Bench Division dismissed the claimants' application for judicial review of the grant planning permission for a waste transfer station. The defendant local authority had not erred in law in its approach to screening the development under the regime for environmental impact assessment. Nor had the authority misapplied the relevant policy in the development plan when it determined the application for planning permission.
