R (on the application of Lafarge Aggregates Ltd) v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Environment – Waste. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of a decision by an inspector, appointed by the defendant Secretary of State, to dismiss the claimant's appeal against the refusal by the interested party, the Environment Agency, to grant a standard rules environmental permit. On the central issue of whether the inspector had been correct in his interpretation of art 3(15) of Parliament and Council Directive (EC) 2008/98, the claimant's case had not been made out.
