Judicial Revue (JR)

  • Were a local authority to disregard an Act of Parliament, in so doing, it might act beyond its remit - See ultra vires.  A Judicial Revue would be the last option open to a victim of such act or omission.  This is an expensive time consuming process where judges review the actions taken whilst comparing the lawfulness of the acts before determining whether the actions were lawful.  If found unlawful, the local authority would have to reverse any decision.  The costs born by the loser are substantial.  Even the winner is likely to have to pay substantial sums.  Article 4 and Additional Licensing must be implemented in accordance with rules based upon evidence to support the need to introduce such measures.  Failure could result in JR.
