On an application by the Claimant for permission to apply for judicial review
Following consideration of the documents lodged by the Claimant and the Defendant
ORDER by Roger ter Haar KC, sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge

  1. The Claimant’s application for an anonymity order is granted under CPR r 39.2(4) and/or the general case management powers in CPR r. 3.1(2). The Claimant in this action shall have anonymity until further order. No report or publication of these proceedings shall directly or indirectly identify the Claimant. Pursuant to CPR r.5.4(c), a person not a party to the proceedings may obtain a copy of the statement of case, judgment or order of the court records, only if the statement of case, judgment or order from the court has been anonymised. In the case title, the Claimant’s name shall be replaced by the initials ‘RR’. Failure to comply with this direction could lead to contempt of Court proceedings.
  2. This application is adjourned for 28 days after which the papers should be placed before a judge to consider what orders should be made.


  1. The Claimant’s grounds are dated 18 August 2023. On 23 August 2023 the Claimant and his family were offered and took alternative accommodation, however the Claimant maintains that this alternative accommodation is unsuitable. The Defendant disagrees.
  2. I understand that the Claimant has asked the Defendant for a statutory review as to the suitability of the alternative accommodation provided.
  3. If that review is successful from the Claimant’s perspective, then this application for judicial review may be rendered academic.
  4. Accordingly I have adjourned this matter for 28 days to see how the situation progresses.
