Matthew Feldman acted for the Claimant in a claim to quash the Council’s decision to refuse to accept a fresh homelessness application

In R (on the application of Bukartyk) v Welwyn Hatfield BC [2019] EWHC 3480 (Admin), Matthew Feldman acted for the Claimant in a claim to quash the Council’s decision to refuse to accept a fresh homelessness application under Part VII of the Housing Act 1996. The Council contended that no relevant new facts were presented in the fresh application, or alternatively, that any new facts were trivial. Applying the principles in Rika Begum v Tower Hamlets LBC [2005] 1 WLR 2103, the Judge held that the Council’s decision was unlawful and allowed the claim. For the full judgment, please click here
