Re Application of Littlewood v. Bassetlaw DC (Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court, 2008)

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom


Side A: Littlewood (Government)


Side B: Bassetlaw DC (Government)


Core objectives: Sought judicial review of local authority's grant of planning permission to a developer.


Summary
A United Kingdom court upheld the grant of planning permission for a project which included a pre-case concrete manufacturing facility. A local resident challenged the district council's decision, citing failure to consider the adverse impacts of the proposed facility on climate change, in particular, from carbon dioxide emissions. The court held that the omission of the effect of concrete production on climate change had not been raised in time, and in any case, did not render the Environmental Statement deficient.
