A legal challenge against a decision of a Planning Inspector or Secretary of State in relation to a planning appeal is made by way of statutory challenge pursuant to section 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) (TCPA 1990), rather than by way of judicial review. Further information about statutory challenges can be found in Practice Note: Statutory planning review—s 287
