Council house EPC ratings & MEES

The request was partially successful.

Climate Emergency UK

Dear Eastbourne Borough Council,

Please treat this as a Freedom of Information/Environmental Information Regulations request.

I would like information about your council’s homes and MEES enforcements in relation to climate action for the Council Climate Action Scorecards. This information may be held by a housing department or similar.

In particular, please supply me with information relating to the following questions:

1. What is the energy efficiency of the council's homes (managed or owned by the council)? Please provide either a distribution table with the number of buildings for each EPC rating or the percentage of the council’s homes that have received an EPC rating of C or above.

2. What is the number of investigations, enforcement notices and enforcement actions that the council did, related to MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards) in the 2021/22 financial year.

Where data is available separately for each statistic please provide separately. If only some information is available, please give me that information.

I would prefer to receive information in a machine readable format, such as CSV files for data, where possible.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Hannah Jewell, Climate Emergency UK

Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council have combined
services.

 

I trust that this deals with your enquiry to your satisfaction, but if you
feel that Eastbourne Borough Council has misunderstood or not responded
appropriately to your request, you have two courses of action:

 

• You can clarify the terms of your original request to allow this to be
looked at again (if you expand your request this will be dealt with as
a new request)
• All applicants have a ‘right of review’. A review should be focused on
the original request and should identify how the council has dealt
incorrectly with your Information Request. Reviews must be made in
writing (or e-mail) within 40 working days of receipt of this response
and addressed to the Information Governance Reviews Officer, to the
address below.
