Dear D G Hardwick,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

Please find the response to your request below.

The Council considers the full addresses of privately owned properties to be personal data and is therefore exempt under section 40 (personal information) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), as the information constitutes third party data.
In addition the Council no longer owns any housing stock - all our properties were transferred to Wakefield and District Housing in 2005. Therefore you may like to redirect your request to WDH, please find their contact details below.


Head Office - Merefield House,
Whistler Drive,
