Wenman –v- SSCLG  EWHC 925 (Admin), 21 April 2015, Mrs Justice Lang
Mr Wenman is a Romani Gypsy who was seeking permission for a one pitch Gypsy Site for him and his family. He was unsuccessful before the local planning authority and also before the Planning Inspector. He appealed to the High Court under Town and Country Planning Act 1990 Section 288 on the basis that the Planning Inspector had failed to properly address the relevance of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). The First Defendant, the Secretary of State, argued that NPPF was not relevant here and what was relevant was only Planning Policy for Traveller Sites (PPTS).
