Persimmon Homes Ltd & Anor, R (on the application of) v Vale of Glamorgan Council [2010] EWHC 535 (Admin), [2011] JPL 1169


The claimants had argued that the decision of the Council to endorse the preferred strategy, which excluded the claimants' site, was flawed by reason of a defective officers' report and by predetermination and a conflict of interest at officer level. The claimants had also argued that the Council had unlawfully failed to re-consult on the options that had emerged at the pre-deposit stage. The Judge rejected all the grounds of challenge.

Morag Ellis QC and Robin Green appeared for the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
