Dear Philip Barker
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 29 October 2019.
 
This request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
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.
Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires the London Borough 
of Redbridge, when refusing to provide such information (because the 
information is exempt within the provisions of the Act) to provide you, the 
applicant, with a Notice which: 
1. a)      states the fact that an exemption has been applied
2. b)      specifies the exemption in question, and
3. c)      states why the exemption applies (if that would not otherwise be 
apparent)
I can confirm that London Borough of Redbridge holds the information you 
requested. However we are withholding that information since we consider that 
the following exemptions apply to it.
You requested the following information:
 



How many residents on the council waiting list have been placed in 
properties in the Paragon building in central Ilford owned by Swan 
Housing, how long has each resident been on the housing list and what 
were the incomes of each resident. 

Under section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA), we are not required to 
provide information in response to a request if it is already reasonably accessible 
to you.
 
This response therefore acts as a refusal notice under section 17 of the FoIA.
 
The information you requested is available at http://www.ellcchoicehomes.org.uk/ 
. If you do not have access to the internet at home, you may be able to use 
facilities at your local library.
I can also confirm that incomes are not a mandatory collection field and is not 
held in a reportable format.
Please quote the reference number 7468830 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 
Website: www.ico.gov.uk

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 faithfully
