Peter Hering made this Freedom of Information request to Torbay Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by Torbay Borough Council.

Dear Torbay Borough Council,

I would like an up to date list of current residential empty properties in Torbay. We as local property investors started to work closely to Torbay Disability Centre as well as other smaller charities to help to find and create suitable accomodation for those who need our help the most.

In case you would already have a separated list into council owned, along with others known to the council, for example - housing associations, charities and private
individuals that would be most useful.

Thanks for all your effort and help! Yours faithfully,

Peter Hering

Freedom of Information, Torbay Borough Council

Dear Mr Hering

 

Further to your request received on 13 April 2015, we have considered your
request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and I can confirm that
Torbay Council has completed its search for the information that you
requested.

 

This information is as follows:

 

I would like an up to date list of current residential empty properties in
Torbay

 

Torbay Council is unable to provide you with the information for empty
residential properties where the liable party is an individual as personal
data is exempt from disclosure under Section 40 of the Freedom of
Information Act.  The addresses of properties belonging to individuals
constitutes personal date (as details of ownership can be obtain from the
Land Registry).

 

Council Tax records do not specifically identify properties owned by
individuals or non individuals. For the collection of Council Tax the
tenant can be the responsible person for the charge and we are unable to
distinguish from our records those empty properties that are not owned by
individuals, therefore, we are unable to provide you with the information
requested.

 

The information supplied to you continues to be protected by the
Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. You are free to use it for your
own purposes, including any non-commercial research you are doing and for
the purpose of news reporting. Any other re-use, for example commercial
publication, would require the permission of the copyright holder.

 

Torbay Council publishes Access to Information requests and responses on
its online Disclosure Log. Only requests deemed to be in the public
interest will be included and any request included within this log will be
de-personalised accordingly.

If you have any queries about this email please do not hesitate to contact
me directly, quoting the reference number listed at the top of this email
in all communications.

make a complaint please write to Information Compliance, Town Hall, Castle
