s149 public sector not given due regard in Council Tax Scheme


Re: R (Logan) v London Borough of Havering [2015] EWHC 3193 (Admin)

The claimant challenged the legality of the defendant’s Council Tax Scheme and the means by which it was adopted. The court held that the scheme was not discriminatory under ECHR, art 14 or the Equality Act, but did find, in line with Bracking and Hunt, that the public sector equality duty had not been given due regard pursuant to the Equality Act, s 149.

Karon Monaghan QC was involved in this case.
