Dear Mr Barker
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 24 June 2019.
 
Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides two distinct but 
related rights of access to information which impose corresponding duties on 
public authorities. These are:
• The duty to inform the applicant whether or not information is held by the 
authority and, if so,
• The duty to communicate that information to the applicant. 
 This request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You 
have requested the following information:.
What is the total in figures for residents on the waiting list housed in 
legally defined newly built since 2010 affordable housing in a private 
sector development in Redbridge managed by a registered social 
provider since 2014 , and in which developments , managed by which 
registered social provider , at which level of rents , at which locations 
by street and postcode , per year from 2014 -2019 ( private sector 
developments are defined as buildings owned by a private company 
which has an agreement to provide affordable housing of more than 9 
units which are managed by a registered social provider of housing). 

Regrettably, I am unable to provide you with all of the information you have 
requested as the estimated cost of doing so exceeds the appropriate limit as 
defined in s12 of the Freedom of Information Act and detailed in Data Protection 
 




(Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulation 2004 SI 2004 No 3244. In these 
circumstances the Council is entitled to refuse the request.
This is because the Council does not record details of rent levels in a reportable 
format. Therefore, in order to identify this information the Council would have to 
manually check each record. This would, in addition to the time already spent on 
this request, exceed the 18 hours limit. 
However, I am able to provide the rest of the information requested, which is 
included in the attached spreadsheet. 
Please quote the reference number 6019965 in any future communications.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome or the handling of your request, you have 
the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be 
submitted within 20 working days of the date of receipt of the response to your 
original email or letter and should be addressed to:
Information Officer, 7 th Floor (front), Lynton House, High Road, Ilford, IG1 1NN or 
sent to xxx.xxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxx.xxx.xx .
If you are still dissatisfied with the Council’s response after the internal review 
you have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
The Information Commissioner's Office 
Wycliffe House 
Water Lane 
Wilmslow 
Cheshire SK9 5AF. 
Telephone: 01625 545 700

 Although the London Borough of Redbridge has considered your request strictly 
in accordance with the Act, if any or all of the information provided is to be 
published or broadcast, we would like the opportunity to comment on the 
information provided, in so far as that publication or broadcast refers to, or in any 
way identifies, the London Borough of Redbridge before the information is 
published or broadcast.   The London Borough of Redbridge’s Press Office can be 
contacted on xxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxx.xxx.xx.  
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
Darren Fairclough
