R (on the application of Oldfield) v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant challenged the defendant Secretary of State's decision to grant planning permission for the development of a retail site. He contended that the environmental effects of the development should have been considered with the proposed development of an amusement park. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the Secretary of State had been entitled to conclude that the free-standing consequences of the amusement park were not to be considered as part of the retail site development.
