Stroud District Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant applied to quash the first defendant Secretary of State's decision to grant planning permission for an energy from waste facility. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the Secretary of State had had before him all the evidence and submissions from witnesses, and there was nothing in the decision to suggest that he had excluded any of the evidence from proper consideration. The court could not substitute its view for that of the planning decision-maker in matters of planning judgment.
