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

Town and country planning – Local government. The second defendant local authority refused the claimant retrospective planning permission for the construction of an extension and issued an enforcement notice in respect of the same. The planning inspector, appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, refused the claimant's appeal against the refusal and the enforcement notice. The claimant challenged the refusal under s 288(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (the Act) and appealed the enforcement notice under s 289 of the Act. The Planning Court, in refusing the application and dismissing the appeal, held that there had not been any error of law.
