Government loses NPPF fracking High Court case over 'unlawful' consultation

The housing ministry may have to reconsider the National Planning Policy Framework's (NPPF's) support for fracking and other forms of onshore oil and gas operations after a High Court judge ruled that a consultation on the policy was unfair and unlawful and the government had failed to take into account up-to-date scientific evidence on the climate change impacts of such development.
