Wealden District Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The Planning Court allowed the claimant local planning authority's challenge to the grant of planning permission by the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State for housing and associated development. The inspector had erred in law when having concluded that the proposals would have no significant effect on the special area of conservation, in particular with respect to nitrogen deposits, and in having concluded that there had been no alternative sites to meet the need for the proposed development.
