Dear Mr Flynn,

Re request ref no: 11538847

Thank you for your request for information, which we received on 3 March
2023. This information is being provided as a statutory obligation under
the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004 and Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

Your request

Please provide me with all communications between yourselves and Southern
Housing Group related to your 2022 affordable housing audit of the
following seven schemes:

03/AP/1071

02/AP/0168

03/AP/0878

02/AP/2012

09/AP/2003

13/AP/1738

14/AP/4905

Our response

Please see attached the original letter that was sent to Southern Housing,
requesting data regarding their Affordable housing stock within Southwark.

The data later received from Southern Housing has been disaggregated and
posted on the Council website (link below)

[1]https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=eyJrIjoiN...

 

Please note that Southern Housing did not provide any response to our 2022
audit. The Planning Policy Team are currently in the process of conducting
our audit for the 2023 cycle and will update the website link once the new
data has been received from all related Registered Providers

In addition, Southern Housing did not submit information for the following
schemes and as a result the Planning Policy looked further into each of
the schemes and found the following;

¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 02/AP/0168 ‚Äď Enforcement case was opened, investigating the
affordable housing provision on site. Land registry details indicated that
Southern Housing own the Affordable housing units.

¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 03/AP/0878 ‚Äď Southern Housing did not provide a response to
this scheme. Land Registry shows correct number of affordable housing
units has been secured.

¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 09/AP/2003 ‚Äď Enforcement case was opened however correct
number of social rent units have been secured.

¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 13/AP/1738 ‚Äď Southern Housing have stated that they do not
own these shared ownership units and so have been possibly bought out.

Dear Ms Plewniak,

Thank you for the information but my request was for "all communications between yourselves and Southern Housing Group relating" to the audit.
Instead you have provided just one letter from yourselves to SHG requesting information about its affordable housing provision.
Please provide me with a copy of SHG's response to your (12th March 2021) letter as well as any other communications relating to the audit.

Yours sincerely,

Jerry Flynn
