R (Heffernan) v Rent Service – WLR Daily

R (Heffernan) v Rent Service; [2008] WLR (D) 279

“Rent officers, in identifying the ‘locality’ under Sch 1, Pt I to the Rent Officers (Housing Benefit Functions) Order 1997, as amended, needed to assemble only enough ‘neighbourhoods’ to satisfy the requirements of para 4(6)(c). ‘A broad geographical area’ was misleading. ‘Neighbourhood’ was similarly not to be interpreted as comprising too large an area. The rent officer’s inquiry was restricted to the ‘facilities and services’ specified in para 4(6)(b).”
