London Borough of Lambeth (Appellant) v Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and others (Respondents)
Case ID: UKSC 2018/0099
Whether a condition restricting the use of the premises should be implied into a planning permission granted by the appellant; alternatively, whether the planning permission should be interpreted as containing such a condition.
In 2014 the appellant council received an application to vary a condition restricting the use of retail premises in Streatham, to expand the range of non-food goods that could be sold. The appellant granted a new planning permission, which did not include a condition restricting the use to the goods specified in the application. In 2015 the second respondent applied for a certificate of lawful use for unrestricted retail purposes. The appellant refused to grant the certificate, but the Secretary of State allowed the second respondent’s appeal.
