O’Brien and others v South Cambridgeshire District Council: CA 24 Oct 2008

The court considered the use of injunctions to restrain breaches of planning control. The applicants were gypsies who had taken up occupation of land in mobile homes. The respondent had given them twelve months for them to find alternative accomodation. The extended time was intended to minimise disruption to the children’s education.
Held: Even if the council had fallen short in its duty under the Race Relations Act the court in exercising its discretion could remedy those failings.
