No5 barristers appear in Hereford Rugby Club planning permission dispute

The Court of Appeal has dismissed an appeal by Hampton Bishop Parish Council against the decision of the High Court (Hickinbottom J; [2013] EWHC 3947 [Admin]), which upheld the decision of Herefordshire Council to grant planning permission to Hereford Rugby Club to develop new rugby grounds in open countryside outside of the city.

The development includes 190 houses in order to subsidise the construction of the new rugby grounds. The decision also provided, by way of a section 106 agreement, that the club’s former grounds are to be transferred to the council for £1.

Richard Kimblin and Nina Pindham from No5 Chambers appeared on behalf of the respondent, Herefordshire Council.

No5 Chambers’ Ian Dove QC and Jack Smyth appeared on behalf of the Interested Parties, Hereford Rugby Club and Bloor Homes Ltd (which is carrying out the development).
