Court must not be swayed by council approval
Lawntown Ltd v Camenzuli and Another
Court of Appeal
“When exercising its discretion whether to vary a restrictive covenant to permit conversion of a single dwellinghouse into flats where planning permission had been granted, the court had to carry out its own balancing exercise and not be swayed by the fact that the planning authority had already granted permission.”
