Regina v Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions, ex parte Bath, and North East Somerset District Council: CA 3 Jun 1999

A finding by the local planning authority that applications for listed buildings consent and planning permission were invalid, was not sufficient to exclude the right of the applicant to appeal to the Secretary of State against that finding of validity. This was in accordance with the broad purposes of the planning legislation despite apparently inconsistent particular provisions.
