R (on the application of Milton (Peterborough) Estates Company trading as Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate v Ryedale 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 to the interested party for retail units and associated development. The Planning Court, in allowing the application, held that the officers' report had misled members and had misled them significantly as to the inspector's findings and conclusions. Further, the cumulative economic effect of two retail developments had not been considered. Accordingly, the discretion to quash the authority's decision would be exercised.
