Wenman v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and another

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant challenged the decision of the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State, dismissing his appeal against the second defendant local planning authority's refusal of planning permission for the stationing of caravans for residential purposes. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that the inspector had erred in his treatment of policies for the supply of housing under para 49 of the National Planning Policy Framework, and in misstating and misapplying the relevant test.
