Northampton DCH questions NBC Housing Allocations Scheme!
In light of this judicial review have NBC reviewed its Allocations Scheme since 2013?
H & Ors, R (On the Application Of) v Ealing London Borough Council EWHC 841 (Admin)
I have heard that people responsible for drafting the scheme are shocked and upset by the judgment because they believe that they had express permission from the government in the Localism Act and the CLG guidance to the Act to offer preference to working households.
So they did, so they very much did, but the question is – and this is one that other councils should pay due regard to – at whose expense? While a scheme offering a preference to working households could be entirely legitimate, this can’t be simply by reducing the chances of the disabled, or on a gender basis, or with an undue impact upon children.
