Lochailort Investments Ltd v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Costs – Order for costs. The claimant company sought judicial review of the decision of the inspector appointed by the defendant Secretary of State, refusing it the costs of its successful appeal. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that there was no clear explanation of why the inspector had felt that the material she had considered to have afforded a respectable basis for the local authority's stance had met the objective standard necessary to support the reasons for refusal.
