R (on the application of C) v London Borough of Islington

Housing – Homeless person. The Administrative Court, in allowing the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant local housing authority's award of points and the lawfulness of its allocation scheme, held that the procedure by which the authority operated the provision of direct offers of social housing under its scheme was unlawful. In view of the lack of evidence that the claimant's application had been considered under the direct offer part of the scheme or the reasons why a direct offer had not been made to her, the authority's decisions were unlawful.
