R (on the application of Tesco Stores Ltd) v Forest of Dean District Council

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant, Tesco, sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission for the redevelopment of a shop and the construction of a retail store. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the authority had exercised its planning judgment in ways that had been entirely matters for it. Further, its decision had not been irrational.
