Stewart v Birmingham City Council [2018]

This is a claim for judicial review concerning the decision of a local authority that a child was not a “child in need” for the purposes of section 17 of the Children Act 1989, and the consequential refusal to provide the child and her parents with accommodation. It is claimed that the decision was unlawful, in particular due to the failure by the local authority to take into account a relevant consideration, namely the effect of the “Right to rent” scheme provided by Part 3 of the Immigration Act 2014.
