Regina v Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council ex parte Andrew Tew; George Daniel Milne; and Steven Garner: Admn 7 May 1999

An outline application for a shopping development, gave no details of the expected floor area, and nor was there an environmental assessment.
Held: The failure to give the floor area was not critical, but even at this stage the ommission of the environmental impact plan was. A policy must be read in the context of the legislative framework and must be read fairly and as a whole.
