High Court can authorise unregistered placements for under 16s under inherent jurisdiction (Court of Appeal)

In A Mother v Derby City Council [2021] EWCA Civ 1867, the Court of Appeal concluded that unregistered placements were prohibited before the Care Planning, Placement and Care Review (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/161) were made. However, the High Court can authorise a child’s deprivation of liberty in an unregistered placement under its inherent jurisdiction.
