R v Secretary of State for the Environment Transport and the Regions: QBD 1 Dec 1999

A chapel had land used for parking. The chapel and land were sold to the appellant who used the chapel for the sale of cars. The use of the parking land grew, and it was claimed that he had changed the use of the land. An ancillary use is one subordinate to or linked functionally to a primary use, but the loss of an existing ancillary use was a matter of fact and degree. The inspector had correctly concluded that the right had been lost.
