Newham London Borough Council v Ali and others [2014] EWCA Civ 676;  [2014] WLR (D)  223

‘A substantial breach of a planning obligation under section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 would normally justify the grant of an injunction sought pursuant to section 106(5) unless relief ought to be withheld on equitable principles because of the local planning authority’s actions. The existence of an outstanding planning appeal would generally be irrelevant to whether an injunction should be granted, but the judge nevertheless had the power to suspend the injunction where it was fair, just and reasonable to do so.’
