Joinglobal Ltd v Secretary of State for Environment Transport and the Regions, and Another: Admn 3 Oct 2001

The applicant had outline planning permission for residential development of a green field site in an urban area. He allowed it to expire, and made further application. On the local authority failing to decide, it applied to the inspector who refused it. In the light of current policies (PPG3), such development was no longer appropriate.
Held: Though the site was within a village, it had properly been treated as urban. The inspector had properly considered PPG3, and there was no justification for treating it as analogous to previously developed land.
