Hodge v Folkestone & Hythe District Council (2023) EWCA Civ 896 reaffirms that (1) whether the place which an applicant happens, or happened, to occupy is, or was, “accommodation” for the purposes of Section 191(1) of the Housing Act 1996 is a question of fact for the local housing authority, subject to Wednesbury, and (2) whether it is reasonable for an applicant to continue to occupy temporary accommodation is also a question of fact for the authority, subject to Wednesbury.
