West Sussex CC took deputy prime minister John Prescott to judicial review this week to challenge the legality of his demand that it builds 12,800 extra homes.

The council's local structure plan suggested 37,900 new homes would be needed by 2011. Mr Prescott demanded that 52,800 be built.

Gerald Moriarty QC for West Sussex argued that Mr Prescott was failing to comply with guidance he issued. The case was adjourned. It is expected to be rescheduled for 10 July.
