Following today’s judgment, local authorities and other public bodies should be in no doubt that they cannot hide away from the true reasoning behind their decisions, and will be required to give the public more information about the possible options and the reason why they favour their proposal.”

Ms Moseley said: “We are relieved to have won this court battle and prove that the consultation was unfair, but it is such a shame that it has had to come to this as Haringey Council should have been looking out for people like me who are struggling and are in a vulnerable position. We didn’t know there were potential alternatives to the system they wanted to use, it was just presented as if we had no choice.

Taking legal action was a last resort because the council just weren’t listening to us and so many people have struggled with their bills in the past year. Hopefully, now they will reconsider their position and make changes to the way they use the council tax rebate system.”
