Cathays Ward - HMO Additional Licensing Database - Missing Data

Paul Byers made this Freedom of Information request to Cardiff Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cardiff Council,

On 13 March 2012, you supplied me with HMO2.xls, a spreadsheet listing addresses covered under mandatory HMO licensing.

I have now had a chance to review the entries relating to the Cathays ward, and request some data not present in this file, mainly the values in 'max.number.persons' field. I would also appreciate any missing entries in the 'premises.usage' where they do not appear in the list below.

Dear Cardiff Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Cardiff Council's handling of my FOI request 'Cathays Ward - HMO Additional Licensing Database - Missing Data'.

Yesterday I received a response to a related FOI request which contained an attachment (attachment 2.xls) listing those HMOs in the Cathays ward covered by additional licensing. This was a replacement for HMO2.xls sent on 13 March 2012. Neither spreadsheets contain the information about the 'maximum no. persons' for the properties I have listed.

Is this information held elsewhere or does the council not know?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Paul Byers

Parsons, Dave, Cardiff Council

Dear Paul

Thank you for your email and apologies for the delay in responding.

I assume from your email that your reference is to data which is omitted
from attachment two.

I have checked with the officers concerned who have advised that the
reason why some fields are empty is because this data is not held by the
authority at this time.

It may be possible that this information may be held within 4-6 weeks
when officers are asked to ensure database entries are complete, and we
can provide you with an up to date list at this time if this is
acceptable. If you wish for this please let me know.

Yours sincerely

Dave Parsons
Information Officer
Cardiff Council

Dear Parsons, Dave,

I'm happy to wait now I know that the data has not been collected, but that the council intends to collect it in the near future.

I would like it to be forwarded to me when it becomes available.

Thanks once again for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Byers
