Dear Nigel Perry,

 

Original request

Dear Leeds City Council, I am writing to ask you for the Freedom of
Information request to the additional costs of cleaning Sex waste ,
especially with Council cut backs and has the cost been pushed onto the
Holbeck Ward, I know that the cost of cleaning Holbeck and areas affected
by The Managed Area must be escalating and I would like to the full cost
through the freedom of Information, I would like to know the costs of the
years that Managed Area has been going on.

 

Response

The costs of cleansing sex related waste in Holbeck are detailed below. 
 These amounts  include costs for the cleansing of both residential and
the light industrial areas and also includes work such as shrubbery
removal.    

Investment in cleansing in the areas has increased since 2014  as part of
the work to better manage the impact of street based sex working .  Prior
to 18/19 the amounts also included some costs that were unrelated to
street based sex working  such as the removal of drug related litter. At
the time these costs were not able to be separated out.

 

In 2018/19 a dedicated team has been established including the use of  a
sweeper vehicle.  These new arrangements,  supported by  intelligence and
information supplied by the community of Holbeck,  have resulted in a more
efficient and targeted service leading to a marked improvement in both
response times to complaints of sex related litter and the overall
cleanliness of the area.   This increased efficiency has allowed the
service to invest more time and resource on general cleansing and
environmental work within in Holbeck as a whole.

 

2014/15    £10,000

 
2015/16    £20,000

 
2016/17     £29,000

 
2017/18 £29,000

 
2018/19 * (Estimated costs based on spend to date) £16,000

 

I trust that this response is satisfactory. If however you are
dissatisfied with this response you have a right to appeal to an
independent officer within the directorate. They will re-examine your
request and assess whether we have adhered to the requirements of the act.
Should you wish to follow this course of action please address your
concerns in writing by emailing [1][email address].

 

You also have a right under Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act
to ask the Information Commissioner to decide whether we have met with our
obligations under the act.  The Commissioner has however made it clear
that she expects all applicants to exhaust internal appeals procedures
prior to making such an application. Should you wish to contact the
Commissioner’s office then you can write to the following address:

 

Office of the Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

You may also contact the Commissioner via her website at [2]www.ico.org.uk

 

I trust that this is self-explanatory.  If you have any queries please
contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,
