Dear Sir or Madam,

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like to request the following information:
1) How many cases have been referred to or dealt with by the council's social services regarding concerns about a child or children living in poor/unsuitable housing conditions?

2) How many of these cases have resulted in the temporary or permanent removal of a child or children from those housing conditions?

3) How many cases have been referred to or dealt with by the council's social services regarding concerns about an elderly or vulnerable adult living in poor/unsuitable housing conditions?

4) How many of these cases have resulted in the temporary or permanent removal of an elderly or vulnerable adult from those housing conditions?

Can you please provide the data for Qs 1 - 4 from January 1st, 2016 up to and including the most recent data you hold for 2021. Please provide the data broken down year-by-year, eg:
2016:
2017:

2020
2021 (so far):

Please provide the information in an electronic format via email to [email address] showing the number of cases, the date they were first raised with social services and the primary cause for the housing being deemed unsuitable for the child/children removed.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits, please provide advice and assistance as to how I can refine my request.

I look forward to receiving your response within 20 working days. If you need any further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.
