Dear IMG.SSH.requests,

Many thanks for this reply. Please can I ask as a supplementary:

Can you provide a total figure for the total of all costs to the Local Authority in relation to
unauthorised encampments for the financial year 2016/17?

Apologies for not asking in my previous enquiry and I appreciate that you do not keep quarterly breakdowns of figures so the total annual figure would be fine thanks

Yours sincerely,

Ben
