Financial consequences as a material consideration (Update)
I have updated my blog entry under this heading posted on Wednesday, 18 August 2010 to record the Supreme Court’s decision in this case.
The Court of Appeal's decision has been upheld by a unanimous decision of the Supreme Court, confirming that when considering whether to revoke or modify a planning permission, a local planning authority can take into account as a material consideration the amount of any compensation which the authority might potentially be liable to pay to the landowner consequent upon that revocation or modification. The reference to the Supreme Court judgment is Health and Safety Executive v Wolverhampton City Council  UKSC 34.
