Reilly v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant applied to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State to dismiss his appeal against the refusal of planning permission for the change of use of land for a caravan site. The Planning Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that there had been ample evidence upon which the inspector had been entitled to reach his conclusions and it was apparent that the identified highway safety risks had existed independently of any driver error. The weight which the inspector had accorded to highway safety was both rational and within the legitimate scope of his judgment.
