Planning analysis: In British Blind and Shutter Association v SHCLG, the Administrative Court quashed regulation 2(2) of the Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018, SI 2018/1230 (the 2018 Regulations), insofar as it introduced regulation 2(6)(b)(ii) of the Building Regulations 2010, SI 2010/2214 (the 2010 Regulations). The court found that the consultation carried out by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government (SoS) prior to introducing the 2018 Regulations was so unfair that it was unlawful.
