Planning and Environment

The court departed from an earlier decision, Alnwick DC v Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions (1999) 79 P&CR 130, in holding that an authority’s liability to pay compensation was material to its consideration of a discontinuance order.

Morag Ellis QC and Robin Green appeared for the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority.
