A recent appeal involving an established caravan park saw Flintshire County Council being awarded costs against them for unreasonable behaviour. The planning committee overturned an officer recommendation to approve the development, and at the ensuing appeal it was decided to claim for costs on behalf of our client. A full award was made by the Planning Inspector against the Council and as a result of this unwarranted behaviour by the planning committee the County Council are now facing a bill of several thousand pounds.
