Regina v North Yorkshire County Council, ex parte Brown and Another: HL 12 Feb 1999

When a mineral planning authority set conditions on the continued operation of a quarry which had been operating since pre-1947, that decision was a development consent, and it required to be supported by an environmental impact assessment, since it had significant environmental effects. The purpose of the Directive is ‘to ensure that planning permissions which may affect the environment are made on the basis of full information.’
