Liverpool Open and Green Spaces Community Interest Company, Regina (on The Application of) v Liverpool City Council: CA 9 Jul 2020

When a local planning authority granted planning permission for a development of housing in two listed buildings and on land within their settings, did it misinterpret and misapply development plan policy for development proposed within a Green Wedge? And did it fail to comply with the duty in section 66(1) of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 (‘the Listed Buildings Act’)? Those are the two central questions in this case.
