I am out of the office until Monday 11 February. If you need assistance before my return please contact Emma Bramwell on 01629 761375 [email address] or Brian Evans on 01629 761301 [email address]. Thank you

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your email, which has been passed to me as my Section
deals with issues relating to empty properties.

Whilst the District Council does hold a list of properties considered to
be empty I am afraid that we do not release information from this list
to members of the public. The reason for this is the decision in the
case of London Borough of Bexley v Mr Colin P England and the
Information Commissioner, in which it was determined that releasing
information of this type would be likely to have a significant negative
impact on the prevention of crime.

We are concerned to make sure that as much use as possible is made of
all existing property within our district and if you are interested in
purchasing or otherwise bringing an empty property back into use I would
be able to pass your details on to the owner of an empty property where
that information is known. If you would be interested in me doing this
then please let me know.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Braund

I would like to request an internal review in relation to the above refusal for information.

Please can you demonstrate how releasing a list of empty homes to developers will have a "significant negative impact on the prevention of crime".

It is my belief that there will no increase in crime rates but rather a decrease. Developers looking for empty property's to bring back to the market will only have a positive effect on local crime rates.

If the council is to have a strong empty homes policy developers must be given the opportunity to invest in a area. Without such investment the spiral of decline in some areas will continue without fresh investment

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Smith

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your email. Prior to the Information Commissioner's
decision we did release the list of empty properties, although not the
names and addresses of the owners. However, the decision is quite clear
that the list should not now be released. I note that some detail about
the decision is available on your own website.

I have, however, referred your request for an internal review to our
Legal Section.

Yours sincerely
