The Gunning Principles - courtesy of the Local Government Association
The Gunning Principles are four principles which define legitimate consultation. They were coined by Stephen Sedley QC in a court case in 1985 relating to a school closure consultation (R v London Borough of Brent ex parte Gunning):
- Proposals are still at a formative stage;
- There is sufficient information to give ‘intelligent consideration’;
- There is adequate time for consideration and response;
- ‘Conscientious consideration’ must be given to the consultation responses before a decision is made.
