Draper v Lincolnshire County Council

Library – Public library. The defendant local authority engaged in public consultation on its proposals to reduce library services within the county. The authority also received alternative proposals, which were rejected. The authority subsequently adopted the proposals it had put out to consultation, subject to minor amendments. The claimant, a library user, sought judicial review of the authority's decision. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that the consultation process had been flawed and quashed the decision.
