Copas and Another v Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead: CA 7 Feb 2001

Land had first been excluded from the green belt, but then the plan had been revised. The revision was challenged, saying that a revision required exceptional circumstances making a revision necessary.
Held: there are not two tests, exceptional circumstances and necessity, but one composite test. The revision was set aside.
