R (on the application of Larkfleet Ltd) v South Kesteven District Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's decision to grant planning permission for a link road on the basis that it had failed to consider it jointly or cumulatively with a proposed urban extension. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the authority had been entitled to conclude that the link road had not been an integral part of the urban extension, requiring joint consideration. Further, the assessment of the cumulative effects of the urban extension had been sufficient to meet the requirements of the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011, SI 2011/1824.
