Town and country planning Development. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division held that a planning inspector had not erred in finding that the failure of the second defendant local planning authority to carry out an assessment of the accommodation needs of gypsies and travellers residing in its district, and to prepare a strategy in respect of the meeting of that need, had not outweighed the other material considerations going against a further temporary permission on Green Belt land.
