R (on the application of Rotherham Action Group Ltd) v Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

Housing – Local authority. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local housing authority's decision, approving designation of four areas in its boundary as being subject to selective licensing. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that it was clear from the evidence that there had been very substantial consideration of the options of selective licensing and voluntary accreditation. There had been no perversity and/or irrationality in the authority having chosen a mandatory scheme over a voluntary one.
