Regina (Gallagher and another) v Basildon District Council [2010] EWHC 2824 (Admin); [2010] WLR (D) 28

“There was no obligation on a local authority to implement recommendations of a local commissioner, nor was it necessary for a local authority to have cogent reasons for refusing to follow such a recommendation; but if a local authority gave reasons for rejecting a recommendation, the court was entitled to examine whether it had taken into account irrelevant considerations or failed to take account of relevant considerations, or its decision was irrational.”
