Sam Smith's Loses Legal Challenge to Selby District Local Plan

Selby Town Centre

4:46pm 27th October 2014

Sam Smith's Old Brewery Tadcaster has lost it's legal battle to the Selby District Local Plan.

The Local Plan, which was adopted by the Council last October, sets out how the district will develop between now and 2027 and will be used as the basis for considering planning applications.

An independent government inspector approved the proposals but Sam Smith's Old Brewery then challenged the document at the High Court.

Both parties put their case at the High Court in Leeds in July. Today, a judgement at the Royal Court Courts of Justice in London dismissed the brewery's challenge on all grounds.

It means the district council can now choose specific sites for new businesses, homes and services as well as detailed planning policies.

Leader of Selby District Council Mark Crane said,

"We welcome the judgement given today which comprehensively dismisses the challenge brought by the brewery.  It took a tremendous amount of work over a number of years to get the document prepared and adopted; it was disappointing to face this challenge but we now have a document that will drive business and housing growth to 2027."

"The Local Plan is a vital part of helping us to support new business growth and jobs, as well as giving people access to the housing they need."
