Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Ealing Borough Council,

Could I please have the following information for the last year:

Question 1
1a) The number of households given a private rented sector offer to
discharge your full housing duty under Section 193 7AA-7AC of the 1996
Housing Act as amended by s.148 (5)-(7) Localism Act 2011.
1b) The number to 1a broken down for each local authority area into which
they were offered housing (eg. 5 to Luton).
1c) The number of households of 1a who actually took the private sector
offer.
1d) The number to 1c broken down for each local authority area into which
they accepted the offer of housing (eg. 3 to Luton).

Question 2
2a) The number of households for whom you had a homelessness duty to and
this was discharged through a private rented sector tenancy, but not
through a Section 193 7AA-7AC offer (therefore excluding the numbers in
1a).
2b) The number to 2a broken down for each local authority area into which
they were housed.

Question 3
3a) The number of households you have helped into private sector tenancies
for whom you have no homelessness duty under the Housing Act 1996.
3b) The number to 3a broken down for each local authority area into which
they were housed.

Question 4
If you make private rented sector offers to
discharge your full housing duty under Section 193 7AA-7AC of the 1996
Housing Act as amended by s.148 (5)-(7) Localism Act 2011, can I please have the guidance your housing officers follow when making these offers?

Yours faithfully,

Elizabeth Wyatt

Dear Ealing Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Ealing Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Private sector discharges'.

You refused to answer 1d as you said it would involve checking each record. However not recording where you have discharged your homeless duties to in the private rented sector seems to be negligent as then there is no way of knowing if a certain area is unsuitable to rehouse people as it has a high level of rejections. Can it be checked that this is definitely not recorded as seems strange you would not record this.

Dear Ealing Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Ealing Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Private sector discharges'.

I have already requested one internal review ralted to this request. However I would like to add to that review a request for an internal review about your answers to 1a and 1c. You said I could find the answers in the detailed local authority statistical tables. However when I looked up the answer to 1a on the statistical tables it was half the value of that given by totalling your answert to 1b. Therefore could I please have 1a and 1c answered as it does not seem to match the information in the statistical tables and therefore the information is not easily accessible elsewhere.
