Dear Mr Shekhavat

 

Thank you for your request for information. We are currently processing
your request in accordance with the relevant legislation.

 

Please note that:

 

The council has been facing unprecedented challenges in responding to the
coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. During this time, resources may have to
be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work. The
council acknowledges that it can’t extend statutory timescales of requests
and everyone is doing their best to meet these. However, priority may have
to be given to other areas, eg the safeguarding of vulnerable people,
during this extraordinary period.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office has [1]blogged about their
approach to requests during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. They have
also released details of their regulatory approach to this issue here:

HI Sid, I suggest you ask for a review of this information. The information provided to you is incorrect, I understand from an acquaintance with some knowledge of how the shropshire council are booking these stays, that they're booking people into Travelodges at rack rates, no discounts and no formal contracts - considerably more than the stated maximums.

I would suggest requesting statements from the homeless team credit or debit cards.
You may also like to rephrase your question, "how many households or individuals" are currently in temporary accommodation.
You should also ask for the total number of temporary accommodation providers and total spend for previous financial years.
