Woking Borough Council v Johnson

Housing – House in multiple occupation. The justices had been incorrect, when determining whether the three-storey requirement in the Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Prescribed Descriptions) (England) Order 2006, SI 2006/371, had been met, to exclude from the calculation a ground floor restaurant located below a two-storey self-contained flat. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the appellant local authority's appeal by way of case stated against the dismissal the information laid against the respondent for managing an unlicensed house in multiple occupation.
