Community care – Education – Accommodation

23 March 2011
Administrative Court
Blair J

Failure to accord sufficient weight to the transitional impact of an accommodation move should be determined in accordance with the Wednesbury test. 
Summary of Judgment
(1) The Claimant, a young man with autism and complex needs, challenged the decision made by the Defendant for him to be placed in different accommodation. The new accommodation was proposed on the basis of proximity to family and this therefore allowing for the maintenance of family links. Cost also featured in the decision, but was not a determining factor.
