Braun v First Secretary of State and Another: CA 20 May 2003

A previous owner of the land had carried out unauthorised alterations to the listed building, and the applicant sought retrospective permission for those and his own alterations. The authority did nor decide on that application, but instead issued enforcement proceedings. The Secretary now appealed dismissal of those proceedings.
Held: The appeal was dismissed. The owner could not be prosecuted for all breaches, including those before he purchased the land. If the authority wanted all unauthorised alterations to be reversed, it had to comply with the section which required full details to be given.
