Dear Mr Barker Freedom of Information Act 2000
Thank you for your request for information received on 24 June 2019.
Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides two distinct but
related rights of access to information which impose corresponding duties on
public authorities. These are:
• The duty to inform the applicant whether or not information is held by the
authority and, if so,
• The duty to communicate that information to the applicant.
This request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You
have requested the following information:.
What is the total in figures for residents on the waiting list housed in
legally defined newly built since 2010 affordable housing in a private
sector development in Redbridge managed by a registered social
provider since 2014 , and in which developments , managed by which
registered social provider , at which level of rents , at which locations
by street and postcode , per year from 2014 -2019 ( private sector
developments are defined as buildings owned by a private company
which has an agreement to provide affordable housing of more than 9
units which are managed by a registered social provider of housing).
Regrettably, I am unable to provide you with all of the information you have
requested as the estimated cost of doing so exceeds the appropriate limit as
defined in s12 of the Freedom of Information Act and detailed in Data Protection
(Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulation 2004 SI 2004 No 3244. In these
circumstances the Council is entitled to refuse the request.
This is because the Council does not record details of rent levels in a reportable
format. Therefore, in order to identify this information the Council would have to
manually check each record. This would, in addition to the time already spent on
this request, exceed the 18 hours limit.
However, I am able to provide the rest of the information requested, which is
included in the attached spreadsheet.
Please quote the reference number 6019965 in any future communications.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome or the handling of your request, you have
the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within 20 working days
of the date of receipt of the response to your
original email or letter and should be addressed to:
Information Officer, 7 th Floor (front), Lynton House, High Road, Ilford, IG1 1NN or
sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are still dissatisfied with the Council’s response after the internal review
you have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
The Information Commissioner's Office
Cheshire SK9 5AF.
Telephone: 01625 545 700
Although the London Borough of Redbridge has considered your request strictly
in accordance with the Act, if any or all of the information provided is to be
published or broadcast, we would like the opportunity to comment on the
information provided, in so far as that publication or broadcast refers to, or in any
way identifies, the London Borough of Redbridge before the information is
published or broadcast. The London Borough of Redbridge’s Press Office can be
