R (on the application of Abdulrahman) v Hillingdon London Borough Council

Housing – Local authority. The Administrative Court allowed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant local housing authority's decision, refusing her application for accommodation, pursuant to s 183 of the Housing Act 1996. Although the authority had applied the correct test, it had been irrational for the authority to have concluded that the application had been based upon exactly the same facts as the previous application, given the application was made by the claimant alone and the number of people seeking assistance had reduced.
