Very little information has been published, subsequent requests have sought specific information eg.

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

In the latter case the department stated:

"There are concerns that the names and addresses of tall buildings in residential use could be used by those with malicious intent to attack or otherwise compromise the safety of these buildings and their residents.I have decided, on balance, that it is not in the public interest to disclose this information at this time"
