Briefing Note: Supreme Court rules on Byway Applications in Dorset

This note seeks to update members on the Supreme Court's decision in Trail Riders Fellowship and another (Respondents) v Dorset County Council (Appellant) [2015] UKSC18.  The case involved five applications for byways in Dorset.  Importantly the Court confirmed the strict approach to compliance with the statutory requirements taken by the Court of Appeal in the case of R (Warden and Fellows of Winchester College) v Hampshire County Council [2008] EWCA Civ 431.
