Satnam Millennium Ltd v Warrington Borough Council

Town and country planning – Planning authority. The claimant developer applied, under s 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, to quash or remit parts of the local plan core strategy adopted by the defendant local planning authority. The Planning Court held that the assessed need had never been expressed or included as part of the objectively assessed needs and the inspector had not dealt with affordable housing, contrary to the relevant policy. Further, there had been substantial non-compliance with the requirements of Sch 2 to the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004, SI 2004/1633.
