Liverpool City Council v Doran (Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government intervening) – WLR Daily

Liverpool City Council v Doran (Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government intervening) [2009] EWCA Civ 146; [2009] WLR (D) 83

“There was no conflict between the propositions (1) that there was no formula setting out the factors which could be relied upon by a licensee in support of an argument that the decision of a local authority, operating a site under the provision of the Caravan Sites Act 1968, to serve a notice to quit was one which no reasonable council would have taken, and (2) that the question whether the council’s decision was one which no reasonable person would have made was to be decided by applying public law principles as they would have been developed at common law, and not through the lens of the European Convention on Human Rights.”
