Duty to consult under the Housing Act 1985, s 105


Re: Bokrosova v London Borough of Lambeth [2015] EWHC 3386 (Admin)

The claimant challenged the decision of the defendant council to cease consultation on certain development options for the Cressingham Gardens Estate. The court held that the defendant’s decision breached the Housing Act 1985, s 105, as it failed to adhere to the consultation arrangements that had been provided for. The decision was thus unlawful.

David Wolfe QC was involved in this case.
