South Gloucestershire Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant local planning authority applied to quash the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, allowing the second defendant's appeal against its deemed refusal of development permission. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that the inspector had erred in failing to consider the views of the core strategy inspector's contrary conclusion as to housing land supply. It refused to exercise its discretion not to quash the decision, given the serious errors of law.
