The Case

On the facts of the instant case, a planning inspector had been entitled to conclude that no affordable housing was required because the proposals to convert three houses, which had been used as one set of offices, into flats, did not amount to different phases of the same development, notwithstanding that the three houses could be said to be in de facto common ownership.
