R (Wychavon District Council) v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others  EWCA Civ 692;  WLR (D) 20
“The loss of a gipsy family’s home with no immediate prospect of replacement was capable in law of being regarded as a very special factor within para 3.2 of the Planning Policy Guidance Note 2 issued by the Secretary of State to local planning authorities. It was a factor to be weighed in the balance when considering the value society attached to the protection of gipsy homes against the public value of the protection of the Green Belt.”
