  • New Forest District Council (15 011 923)

    Statement Upheld Allocations 20-Mar-2017

    Summary: There is no evidence of fault in how the Council made its decision not to agree a disabled facilities grant to extend Miss X's property and in its decision to no longer offer a DFG as an interim measure while Miss X waited to move. The Council was at fault in how it initially dealt with Miss X's concerns about her bathroom not meeting her daughter's needs but this fault did not cause significant injustice to her. Miss X had to wait a long time for the Council to offer alternative accommodation but this was not caused by fault by the Council.
