“106.    The language of [80] of the Framework is notably broad.

110.  [80] of the Framework does not exclude enabling development in principle from its scope, it does not expressly relate to, let alone favour, enabling development either; its thrust is correctly identified by [the Inspector] in DL47.”




R (Shave) v Maidstone Borough Council [2020] EWHC 1895 (Admin), Holgate J

It does not seek to restrict sustainable development in rural areas to such locations.” [31]
