Turner v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant applied for an order quashing the decision of the first defendant Secretary of State, dismissing his appeal against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal of planning permission for a bungalow and associated curtilage. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the Secretary of State's inspector had applied para 89 of the National Planning Policy Framework, had not elided the impact on the openness of the Green Belt and visual impact, and had given adequate reasons.
