R (on the application of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) v London Borough of Ealing

Housing – Local authority. The Administrative Court held that the applicant local housing authority's acceptance of the full housing duty towards the interested party and the defendant local housing authority's acceptance of the local connection referral meant that a new housing duty had been imposed upon the defendant. That was so notwithstanding that it regarded its housing duty to have ceased, as the interested party had previously refused its final offer of accommodation.
