Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster) v Selby District Council

Town and country planning – Planning authority. The inspector appointed by the Secretary of State found the defendant local planning authority's submission draft core strategy to be sound, subject to significant modifications. The claimant sought to quash the authority's adoption of the draft on grounds including that the authority had not complied with its duty to co-operate under s 33A of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the duty to co-operate had not applied after the conclusion of the preparation stage, notwithstanding that it had come into force when the public examination had been suspended.
