Landmark barristers review the key factors in R (Day) v Shropshire Council in which judgment will be handed down on Wednesday 1 March 2023 in a video available on Landmark Chambers’ YouTube channel.

The case is a challenge to the grant of planning permission on land that was part of a recreation ground and raises the question:

Alex Goodman and Kimberley Ziya acted for the Claimant (the Appellant in the Supreme Court).
