Westminster council housing ban for homeless was 'unlawful'

Date Posted: 22 June 2015

Mother-of-three "Ms A" lost her home in March 2014 when her housing benefit payment was cut and she could no longer afford the rent, The High Court heard.

Westminster City Council temporarily moved her to north London and tried to ban her from re-applying for a home in the central borough for 12 months.

A judge ruled the ban was unlawful.
