Zoom webinar



Even before the recent government consultation on housing allocation schemes, this topic has proved a common subject of litigation challenge, many of the cases involving members of Cornerstone Barristers’ Housing Team, with three recent examples including:

  • R (Gomes) v Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea [2023] EWHC 778 (Admin);
  • R (Jaberi) v Westminster City Council [2023] P.T.S.R. 1402;
  • R (MJ) v London Borough of Islington [2024] EWHC 159 (Admin).

In this webinar Catherine Rowlands, Andy Lane and Tara O’Leary highlight the primary areas of such challenges, good practice in the formulation of such schemes and likely issues going forward.
