R (on the application of Lady Hart of Chilton) v Babergh District Council

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 erection of two detached industrial buildings, which it acknowledged would cause harm to heritage assets. The Planning Court dismissed all but one of the claimant's grounds of challenge. However, it postponed making any final order until after the Secretary of State had had a reasonable period of time to consider whether he would wish to call the application in for decision by him.
