The appellants had sought a review of a decision of the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development to approve a development application for a commercial development.  The site of the development was near the appellants’ premises. Two of the three appellants, who were supermarkets, were held to have standing to seek review as they were “persons aggrieved” by the Minister’s decision as it affected their economic interests. The third appellant, a landlord of one of the supermarkets, was held to not be a person aggrieved as it had not established that its interests were adversely affected.
