In an important precedent-setting ruling an English judge declared that the London Borough of Tower Hamlets “acted unlawfully” when it gave the go-ahead for fast food takeaway “Fried & Fabulous”.
The judge said councillors had voted in favour of permission after being wrongly directed that they could not take account of the proximity of the local secondary school because it was not “a material planning consideration”.
