Some common questions
The grounds on which costs may be awarded are few and such instances are rare. You may apply for and be awarded costs if an Adjudicator considers that the council has been "frivolous, vexatious or wholly unreasonable" in its conduct of the matter.
If awarded, costs relate only to reasonable expenses incurred in preparing the appeal. There is no element of compensation for inconvenience or distress, or to punish the council.
