Taylor Wimpey West London v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant applied to quash a decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State dismissing its appeal against the second defendant local authority's refusal of planning permission for residential development. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the inspector had been entitled to conclude that it had been undesirable to allocate the whole of the site for residential use, contrary to the relevant policy. Further, the inspector had not erred in his conclusions concerning future educational needs.
