February, 5 February and 6 February 2013 asking for information about
empty buildings owned by TfL, specifically London Buses, London River
Services, Victoria Coach Station and the London Transport Museum.

 

Your requests have been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy.  I can
confirm TfL holds some of the information you require. You asked for:

 

(a)  addresses of any empty buildings (be it commercial or residential or
industrial or industrial or storage facility etc) which belongs to
yourselves

    

(b)  addresses of any buildings (be it commercial or residential or
industrial or storage facility) which belongs to yourselves, that are
scheduled to be vacant in the next 12 months for whatever reason.

    

(c)   if possible, type of use (eg. storage, office, warehouse, training,
staff accommodation, medical facility etc) of those buildings referred to
in (a) and (b)

    

(d)   if possible, approximate date (month and year) from which it became
empty or will become empty, of those buildings referred to in (a) and (b)

    

(e)   the person in charge of making security issues on those referred to
in (a) and (b) / who in your organisation is in charge of the running of
the estate or properties.

 

As advised in my response to your earlier request, (dated 18 January 2013
- FOI-1549-1213), we publish a list of our ‘vacant units to let’ every
month on the TfL web site at [1]www.tfl.gov.uk/property.  

 

Currently, we do not have any vacant properties for River Services, London
Buses or Victoria Coach Station. All vacant properties are listed on the
aforementioned website. The London Transport Museum does not own any
properties and has no empty buildings.

 

For questions a, b, c and d, please refer to my response dated 18 January
2013.

 

Regarding question e, the overall responsibility for security rests with
the director in charge of the Commercial Development directorate. He in
turn delegates this responsibility to TfL’s Head of Property.

[2][email address] or phone 020 7222 5600. The contact details
are available on the TfL website.
