Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

Following the end of World War 2, many new homes/ houses were built by councils all over the country. Many of these were of "Non-Standard Construction &/or Prefabricated Reinforced Concrete (PRC) properties".
Asbestos or products containing asbestos was used in many of these constructions.
Asbestos was only finally banned in 1999 – however few people realise it is present in about half of all residential properties
1/ Can you please supply a list of all domestic/residential construction types (Standard, Non Standard/ Pre fabricated) that are known to contain asbestos, which are owned by or managed by Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council

2/ The locations within those properties (construction) types where asbestos is known or expected to be found. (copies of owner/occupier data, or information sheets are acceptable)

3/ A list of all the postcodes of such properties.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew J Killingbeck

Suzanne Prescott, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council
