R (on the application of Britwell Parish Council) v Slough Borough Council; R (on the application of Wexham Court Parish Council) v Slough Borough Council

Local authority – Restructuring of local government. The defendant local authority had misinterpreted para 120 of the Guidance on Community Governance Reviews in England (the guidance) and, as a result, had erred in concluding that its decision to make an order abolishing the two claimant parish councils was consistent with the guidance. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the claimants claims for judicial review and quashed the order.
