High Court Judgement Made – Appeal Succeeds

The judgement to the High Court appeal, was made public on the 1st May 2014. The appeal succeeded on 2 of the 3 grounds raised against Solihull MBC, which relate the housing need figures used in developing the plan and its method used to assess revisions to the green belt boundary (Lowbrook Farm and Tidbury Green farm)

This meant that SMBC had to reconsider its housing needs and the method it used to assess revisions to the greenbelt boundary. Consequently SMBC had to make changes to their Local Plan which included deleting the paragraph relating to the two sites in Tidbury Green that were to have been returned to the Green Belt.
