Rehousing Homeless Persons

Show Summary Details

This chapter argues that the issue of local housing supply can be a crucial determinant of both the conduct and content of Part III decision-making. At the most basic level it is evident from the data already presented that all three authorities modelled their administrative behaviour according to their perception of the Act's requirements. ‘Homelessness’, ‘priority need’, ‘intentionality’, and ‘local connection’ were key players in each council's decision-making processes.

Keywords: homeless persons; permanent rehousing; homelessness legislation; local housing supply
