Hillhead Community Council and others v City of Glasgow Council

Expenses – Protective expenses order. Court of Session: Granting a motion by a community council and its elected members, who had appealed against a local authority's decision to make a traffic management and parking control order, seeking a protective expenses order at common law to limit the community council's potential liability in expenses, the court held that a protective expenses order was justified, as the appeal had real prospects of success and the grounds of appeal raised issues of general public importance and the public interest required that those issues should be resolved, and the community council's liability in expenses to the respondents should be limited to £1,000.
