R (on the application of Khan) v London Borough of Sutton

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission for the demolition of existing buildings and development of an energy recovery facility on a site. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the authority had not erred in its interpretation of the relevant waste plan or in its assessment of Metropolitan open land. Further, the authority had not fettered its discretion or erred in failing to assess the environmental impact of combined heat and power pipes.
