R (on the application of Jones) v English Heritage

Town and country planning – Site of historic interest. The claimant applied to have Germany Beck added to the defendant's battlefields register as the site of the Battle of Fulford. The defendant, applying its own selection guide, refused the application on the ground of location uncertainty. The claimant sought judicial review of the decision. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the defendant had not erred in law, and had properly understood and applied its guidance.
