Shelter Scotland Begins Legal Action Against Glasgow City Council

By: Shelter Scotland  Published: October 2019


Summary

On 2nd October we started court action against Glasgow City Council.  We are seeking a judicial review into the Council’s unlawful practice of denying homeless people temporary accommodation. It’s the first time we’ve has taken such action against an entire local authority.

We are taking legal action as the Council has failed to respond to our pre-action letter (sent 19 August 2019) warning of legal action unless it responded appropriately by 30 September
