Ali v Secretary Of State For Environment Food And Rural Affairs and others

Highway – Definitive map. The claimant issued proceedings, seeking the quashing of an order made under s 53 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, modifying the definitive map of public rights of way by adding a new footpath, as confirmed by the inspector appointed by the first defendant Secretary of State. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that, properly construed, the inspector's decision had been rational and she had given adequate reasons for her conclusions.
