High Court Ruling

Planning Policy

A Court of Appeal decision has today overturned a previous High Court ruling brought by Reading Borough Council and West Berkshire District Council that removed a national planning policy requirement intended to exempt small sites from providing affordable housing.  Today’s judgement upheld all four grounds of appeal, but there remains the possibility the Councils may appeal in the Supreme Court.  We are awaiting further detail on the 13,000 word judgement.
