Zoom webinar: Housing Allocation schemes – their review and revision
SpeakersAndy Lane, Sarah Salmon, Tara O'Leary
This one-hour webinar considers the issues facing any local housing authority reviewing its housing allocation scheme.
- Consultation requirements
- The role of equality impact assessments
- Common areas and topics to be considered, such as domestic abuse prioritisation and local letting schemes
- The proper treatment of reasonable preference categories
Members of the Housing Team have been involved in advising a number of local authorities on their scheme reviews, and have acted in recent cases such as Z v London Borough of Hackney  1 W.L.R. 4327, R (Montero) v London Borough of Lewisham  P.T.S.R. 1725 and R (Milton Laines Roman) v London Borough of Southwark  EWHC 1232 (Admin).
The Housing Team at Cornerstone Barristers last dealt with this issue in training in October 2021 (that webinar can be viewed here).
