Examples of relevant considerations

In all cases, it is prudent for the decision-maker to consider:

  • any potential interference with a person’s human rights
  • any relevant statutory or non-statutory guidance
  • government policy statements (e.g. a statutory code of practice or government circular)
  • the decision-maker’s policies
  • advice from the decision-maker’s officers 
  • the response to any consultation on the decision 
  • any representations made by the decision-maker about the decision

Public authorities may also have regard to their limited resources in some circumstances.
