Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your e-mail. I apologise for the delay in replying.

I have attached a list of empty properties - unfortunately, the list I was provided with does not show ownership or length of time unoccupied. The minimum would, though, be six months.

We would also not be looking to release ownership details where those properties are owned by individuals. This constitutes personal information and, as such, is exempt from the FOI Act by virtue of s.40 which covers such information.

Yours sincerely

Dear Richard Mann,

Thank you for the list. I understand you are not obliged to give out personal information but, I see no reason why the length of time a property as been empty should not be included. Please will you update the list with the time each property as been empty

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Smith
