R (on the application of Palmer) v Herefordshire Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission for the development of four poultry broiler units on agricultural land. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that it had been entirely open to the authority to have concluded that no environmental impacts justifying refusal had been disclosed and that there had been no error of law in considering the impact on a Grade II listed building.
