Town and country planning Appeal to Minister against refusal of permission for development. The claimant had unsuccessfully applied for planning permission to a local authority to replace 43 windows to a building he owned.

The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's challenge against the inspector's decision held, inter alia, that the claimant's challenges to the inspector's decision had been unsustainable and erroneous.
