Court case decides it is legal to re-home London homeless hundreds of miles away

“… The judge said that once London and the south east were eliminated for reasons of housing pressure, the West Midlands appeared the next available pool of supply.

The judge said: “It is, I suppose, theoretically possible that Brent might have been able to find somewhere in East Anglia or the East Midlands that was closer to Brent than Birmingham as the crow flies; but that places an onerous burden on a housing authority. Brent was not required to scour every estate agent’s window between Brent and Birmingham.”
