Ramifications of the Court of Appeal’s Judgment in Oakley v South Cambs DC [2017] EWCA Civ 7

The Court of Appeal’s Judgment in Oakley v South Cambridgeshire District Council [2017] EWCA Civ 7 marks a novel expansion of the common law duty to give reasons in the planning sphere. The ramifications for all those practitioners with a stake in planning committee decision making are significant. Richard Ground QC, Rob Williams and Jack Parker (who appeared before the Court of Appeal) will discuss the Court of Appeal’s Judgment (along with a number of other recent Judgments addressing the issue) and its ramifications.
