St George Developments Ltd and Another v Secretary of State for Environment and Another: QBD 31 Oct 1994

The company already had outline permission for a residential development at Kew Gardens. Two schemes were submitted. On one, the council failed to reach a timely determination, and it refused the other. The developers appealed to the Secretary of State.
Held: The appeal failed. Section 54A applied also to an appeal against refusal of matters reserved, and in considering an appeal, the Secretary had himself to apply both section 54A and the development plan as a material consideration. His decision was a determination under the Planning Acts.
