Town and country planning Permission for development. Dover District Council (the DDC) had been in breach of a specific requirement under reg 2(1) of the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011, , to make available a statement of the main reasons and considerations on which its decision to grant planning permission for a proposal for major development on two sites to the west of Dover had been based. The Supreme Court so held in dismissing DDC's appeal against the Court of Appeal, Civil Division's decision to quash the permission. In the circumstances, the only appropriate remedy was to quash the permission.
