Declan to file his claim against the Mayor of London in the High Court on Monday

SECTION 5 Detailed statement of grounds

The Claimant's letter before claim challenges the decision of the Defendant's GLA Housing First programme to insist upon issuing him with Support Plans ("the decision"). The Claimant asserts that the decision is not compatible with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights ("ECHR"), guaranteeing the right to a private life. In a final response letter, the Defendant distorts the Claimant’s claim with reference to the Data Protection Act 1998. The Defendant further alleges that the GLA bears no responsibility for Housing First. The Claimant contends that this incorrect and an unsustainable position. Under the ECHR, the right to security of tenure is guaranteed with the right of privacy and respect of the home. Failing the remedy being sought (see Section 7 below), the Claimant seeks permission to proceed with a claim for judicial review on the ground that the decision of the Defendant’s GLA Housing First programme to insist upon issuing him with Support Plans is in breach of European Community Law.
