Public Law judicial review problem question helpWatch
I was given the following question to work on in my public law class and I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me. I'm most confused on the grounds for judicial review. I really don't understand it at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Question: Crafnant Council has statutory power ‘to manage residential accommodation. ’Pursuant to its Councillors’ election manifesto commitments, namely to improve the standards of living in Crafnant, the Council makes the following arrangements in connection with the Straits Housing Estate, which it fully owns:
i. A car park for the exclusive use of residents of the Straits Estate. All residents must make a financial contribution of £100 per year towards the upkeep of the car park.
ii. The provision of a laundry service, at Council expense, for the use of tenants in full time employment. Derek, an unemployed tenant of a flat on the Straits Estate, who does not own a car and who objects to the laundry service as “a waste of public money," wishes to make an application for judicial review.
A) With reference to relevant sections of the Civil Procedural Rules and appropriate case law, advise Derek:
i) Whether he would be eligible to make an application for judicial review; ii) On what grounds he could seek judicial review;
iii) What remedial possibilities are available to him?
