The Bard Campaign and Another v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government: Admn 25 Feb 2009

The claimant sought judicial review of the inclusion of their land in lands listed for future development of eco-towns. There had been a consultation which they said was inadequate. The consultation was a general invitation for readers to send in their views on housing supply policy issues.
Held: The consultation encompassed any views on so-called Eco-Towns even though the Green Paper did not include particular questions on such developments. Walker J emphasised that consultation documents have to be read as a whole including the Foreword.
