Cala Homes Round 4: To be or not to be?
The latest round of the Cala Homes saga unfolded in Cardiff on Valentines Day when the Secretary of State consented to judgment in the High Court challenge brought by Cala Homes to his dismissal of Cala’s planning appeal for permission for a 2,000 dwelling urban extension at Barton Farm, Winchester.
The Secretary of State chose not to defend his decision on the grounds that the stated reasons were not legally adequate to explain it.
The appeal is now to be redetermined after further representations from the parties.
Winchester City Council is not seeking a re-opening of the Inquiry.
