Redhill Aerodrome Ltd v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Aerodrome – Aerodrome open for public use. The claimant, the operator of Redhill Aerodrome, which was located on the metropolitan Green Belt, applied for planning permission to replace grass runways with a hard runway. The second and third defendant local authorities refused the application and the inspector, appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, refused the claimant's appeal. The claimant sought judicial review of the decision. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the inspector had erred in adopting an impermissible approach to the National Planning Policy Framework.
