High Court rules in favour of Pauls Moss in Whitchurch planning permission

Related topics: Planning

A High Court judge has ruled in favour of Shropshire Council’s decision to grant planning permission for a development in the county.

On 11 January 2021, judgment was handed down by the High Court in the legal challenges brought against the council’s decisions to grant planning permission to Wrekin Housing Trust to provide extra care residential development and a new medical centre on land known as Pauls Moss in Whitchurch.

The council had previously refused an application that included the demolition of Pauls Moss Mansion House. The approved applications, which were subject to judicial review, retained Pauls Moss Mansion House as part of the scheme.

The court has decided that planning permission was granted lawfully and therefore declined to quash the permission.
