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

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimant's appeal against the dismissal of its claim for judicial review of a grant of planning permission by the defendant local planning authority for the construction of a link road. The submission that the authority had been obliged to assess the proposal for the link road and the proposal for a residential site as a single project, was unsustainable. Further, the environmental statement had given a fair and more than adequate account of what the cumulative impacts were likely to be.
