- R. (on the application of Holborn Studios Ltd) v Hackney LBC Queen’s Bench Division (Administrative Court),  EWHC 2823 (Admin)
- It may be noted that the power to grant planning permission is thus made subject to both section 65 and section 327A of the 1990 Act (referred to above). As is apparent, those require the local planning authority not to entertain any application which does not comply with the specified requirements relating to the content of the application and to the notification and publicity to which the application must be subject. A local authority has no power to deal with any application which does not comply with them.
- There is no provision in the statutory scheme for making amendments to any application for planning permission.
- The statutory requirements for notification and publicity of applications for planning permission are not intended, however, necessarily to be exhaustive of the steps that may be taken to encourage public participation in planning decisions.
Bernard v Wheatcroft doubted in this case.
