Home > Cases > Castlebay v Asquith [2005] EWCA Civ 1734 [2006] 2 P. & C.R. 22

Thomas Jefferies acted for Castlebay, the owner of a valuable development site in Bradford. The developer Asquith, held an option which expired on a fixed date unless an application for planning permission remained to be determined. The developer obtained an outline consent, but contended that an outstanding application for approval of reserved matters was a “planning application” for the purposes of the option agreement. The Court of Appeal rejected this argument, holding that the grant of outline permission was the planning permission both in planning law and for the purpose of the agreement.
