Section 70 – Internal procedure on review

189.Section 70 sets out the arrangements for ensuring that the local authority’s internal review is carried out independently of the initial decision. It provides that the review must be conducted by a person who was not involved in the decision to serve the notice and who is senior to the person who made that decision. The reviewer may confirm, vary or revoke the notice and may suspend the notice pending completion of the review. The local authority must give the landlord reasons for the decision taken on review.
