Anthony Crean QC successfully opposes JR in relation to Leicester Urban Extension Approval

Anthony Crean QC, instructed by Shakespeares on behalf of David Wilson Homes and Thurcaston Park Trust Limited successfully opposed Commercial Estates Group’s renewed application for permission in the London Administrative Court on Friday 19 September.

Mr Justice Stuart-Smith rejected claims that a full environmental impact assessment was required before the Secretary of State granted David Wilson Homes permission for 150 homes on an 8.8-hectare segment of a 300 hectare site where Commercial Estates Group had applied for outline planning permission to construct 4,500 residential units on the entirety of the site.
