R (on the application of We Love Hackney Ltd) v Hackney London Borough Council

Costs – Costs capping order. The claimant's application for a costs capping order in its claim for judicial review of the defendant local authority's adoption of a revised statement of licensing policy, which made changes to special policy areas and the core hours policy for licensed premises failed because it did not involve consideration of a point of law of general public importance. However, the Administrative Court allowed the authority's application for security for costs, as the claimant would be unable to pay its costs if ordered to do so.
