The Planning Court last week handed down judgment in Wenman v SSCLG and Waverley Borough Council. The judgment is significant in determining the application of NPPF paragraph 49 to planning applications for mobile homes and caravans. The SSCLG unsuccessfully sought to argue that applications for residential mobile homes or caravans are not housing applications and therefore the provisions of paragraph 49 should not apply. Lang J also took the opportunity to elaborate further on what should be considered a housing supply policy. Michael Rudd successfully appeared on behalf of Mr Wenman. A copy of the judgment is attached.
