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

Town and country planning – Permission for development. The claimant sought to challenge the decision of the first defendant Secretary of State's inspector to refuse planning permission for the construction of a dwelling on a site in the greenbelt. The Administrative Court ruled that the claimant succeeded in his submissions to the limited extent that the inspector had failed to give adequate reasons in respect of the adequacy of the authority's housing land supply. However, his decision would not be quashed because, in the circumstances of the case, it had seemed that he would not have reached a different overall conclusion whatever exercise he had gone on to do.
