Robert Hitchins Ltd, Regina (on The Application of) v Worcesteshire County Council and Others: Admn 18 Nov 2014

A planning permission was granted with an agreement under section 106. A second permission was later granted. The court was now asked whether the section 106 agreement applied also to the second permission.
Held: As a matter of law, the developer was, after the reserved matters approval perfected the Second Planning Permission, able to elect to continue and complete the development under the Second Planning Permission rather than the First Planning Permission. The developer had elected to continue and complete the development under the Second Planning Permission. The court should not grant the declaration sought by the Claimant.
