Secretary of State consents to judgment over 220 house scheme

DATE: 01 Jun 2016

The Secretary of State has agreed that his recovered decision to refuse permission for BDW Trading Ltd's 220 house scheme on land at Boughton Lane, Loose, Maidstone, ‚Äč should be quashed.  BDW challenged the decision on the basis that the Inspector and the Secretary of State had failed to explain whether the central policy in the case was a housing supply policy for the purposes of NPPF 49.   

Robert Walton acted for BDW in the High Court.
