Alnwick District Council v Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions and Another: QBD 8 Sep 1999

Where a grant of permission had been reversed, leaving the planning authority liable to pay substantial compensation, such compensation could not be taken account of when reversing the permission. Financial consequences were only a material consideration when they related to the use and development of the land itself. In this case the compensation was not a material consideration.
