Environment Transport and Planning in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Save Britain's Heritage v Number 1 Poultry Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 28 Febrero 1991

    The single indivisible question, in my opinion, which the court must ask itself whenever a planning decision is challenged on the ground of a failure to give reasons is whether the interests of the applicant have been substantially prejudiced by the deficiency of the reasons given.

  • Tesco Stores Ltd v Secretary of State for the Environment and Others
    • House of Lords
    • 19 Octubre 1995

    If there is one principle of planning law more firmly settled than any other, it is that matters of planning judgment are within the exclusive province of the local planning authority or the Secretary of State.

  • South Bucks District Council v Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions and another
    • House of Lords
    • 01 Julio 2004

    They must enable the reader to understand why the matter was decided as it was and what conclusions were reached on the "principal important controversial issues", disclosing how any issue of law or fact was resolved. The reasoning must not give rise to a substantial doubt as to whether the decision-maker erred in law, for example by misunderstanding some relevant policy or some other important matter or by failing to reach a rational decision on relevant grounds.

  • Edinburgh Council (City of) v Secretary of State for Scotland
    • House of Lords
    • 16 Octubre 1997

    In the practical application of section 18A it will obviously be necessary for the decision-maker to consider the development plan, identify any provisions in it which are relevant to the question before him and make a proper interpretation of them. His decision will be open to challenge if he fails to have regard to a policy in the development plan which is relevant to the application or fails properly to interpret it.

  • Berkeley v Secretary of State for the Environment Transport and the Regions and Another
    • House of Lords
    • 06 Julio 2000

    Although section 288(5)(b), in providing that the court "may" quash an ultra vires planning decision, clearly confers a discretion upon the court, I doubt whether, consistently with its obligations under European law, the court may exercise that discretion to uphold a planning permission which has been granted contrary to the provisions of the Directive.

  • Bushell v Secretary of State for the Environment
    • House of Lords
    • 07 Febrero 1980

    What is fair procedure is to be judged not in the light of constitutional fictions as to the relationship between the Minister and the other servants of the Crown who serve in the Government Department of which he is the head, but in the light of the practical realities as to the way in which administrative decisions involving forming judgments based on technical considerations are reached.

  • R (Morge) v Hampshire County Council
    • Supreme Court
    • 19 Enero 2011

    Democratically elected bodies go about their decision-making in a different way from courts. But the courts should not impose too demanding a standard upon such reports, for otherwise their whole purpose will be defeated: the councillors either will not read them or will not have a clear enough grasp of the issues to make a decision for themselves.
