Re (on the application of Larkfleet Homes ltd) v Rutland County Council

Town and country planning – Planning authority. The claimant challenged, by way of judicial review, the decision of the defendant local authority to allow the Uppingham neighbourhood development plan to proceed to a neighbourhood planning referendum. The Administrative Court dismissed the claim. It held, inter alia, that, on an overall reading of the screening report and knowledge of the author's clear recognition of what the legislation had required of him, he had not failed to consider the positive environmental effects when he had concluded that there had been no significant environmental effects.
