R v Hillingdon London Borough Council, ex p Royco Homes [1974]


  • Royco Homes applied for planning permission for a plot of land they owned
  • The permission was granted, but with very onerous conditions


  • Could a public body (which did not act ‘judicially’) be subject to judicial review


  • Yes, onerous terms quashed


  • An error of law had been made; no authority should have imposed such conditions; doing so was ultra vires
