Speers v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and Country Planning – Development. By an application, under s 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the claimant sought to quash a decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State to allow an appeal against the decision of the second defendant local authority, and to grant planning permission to extend a motor repair garage and retrospectively to extend rear parking. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held, inter alia, that the inspector's conclusion that the increase in activity at the rear area of the site had not been material had not arguably been outside the range of legitimate conclusions to which she had been entitled to have come.
