Temporary Accomodation

Received: 25 April 2024

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.Please can you provide the following information relating to the Council's provision of temporary accommodation:1) The number of reviews into the suitability of temporary accommodation carried out in response to a request made in the period 01/04/2022 to 31/03/2024. For the avoidance of doubt, I refer to a review of suitability in response to the housing applicant's request under s.202(1)(g) of the Housing Act 1996. This may also be referred to as a s202 review.2) Can you please group the reviews by how long they took, in days, to be completed. This could be in a table showing the number of reviews which took 7 days to complete, 8 days to complete, etc. There is no need to provide blank rows (e.g. if no reviews took 9 days), just for the total number of reviews to match the figure provided in response to point 1 of this request.3) Can you provide the totals of the various outcomes for these reviews. For example, how many placements were found to be unsuitable, how many suitable, and any other categories you use.4) And please, unless this specific part of the request takes the work over the cost exemption, provide the number of suitability reviews that found the accommodation contained Category 1 hazards. If the cost exemption is breached by inclusion of this point (4), then please confine your response to points 1-3.Please provide the information in an excel spreadsheet in separate tables for the type of data requested.
