Blackhouse v Lambeth London Borough Council [1972]


  • The council was ordered to provide an overall increased value of rent to its properties
  • It applied all of the increases to one building, which was unoccupied; making rooms £18,000/week (previously £17/week), rather than increasing everyone’s rent by 55p/week


  • Was this unreasonable such that the decision could be quashed


  • Yes


  • The difficult test of Wednesbury unreasonableness was satisfied
