Dear Clackmannanshire Council,

Thanks Pearl for your reply and especially the link. I am struggling to understand your reply to question 2 though. Can people still be classed as homeless even if they are living in a Household? Can the chart be read a bit better as well?...e.g 2016/2017 405 455
172 627 what is the 172 and 627?

Yours faithfully,
