Town and country planning Planning permission. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local planning authority's grant of planning permission to the interested party for a class A1 retail store and related development. The Planning Court, in allowing the application, held that the full impact of the proposed development had not been clearly set out in the officers' report and the committee had not been properly informed of the true extent of the likely harm. Further, nowhere in the officers' report had it been explained why benefits under of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 had been 'necessary' to have made the development acceptable.
