Planning & Development and Associated Human Rights Cases

The following list is provided for your convievience, it does not follow that every case is likely to positively help your case, many judgments have a negative effect upon Human Rights issues, you must therefore use your own judgment as to whether any specific case is useful or harmful. However, it is always worthwhile knowing what you are not likely to be successful in arguing, as well as what you might genuinely put forward, as well as being able to understand why developers and local authorities are putting forward a specific view.
