Abstract: In this paper we apply a recently developed new version of the Bredon-Illman cohomology theory to obtain an equivariant analogue of a result of Kan and Thurston, which implies that a connected CW-complex has the homotopy type of a space obtained by applying the plus construction of Quillen to certain Eilenberg-MacLane spaces.
