Empty Properties List

Phillip made this Freedom of Information request to Burnley Borough Council

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

The request was refused by Burnley Borough Council.

Dear Burnley Borough Council,

I am looking for a list of long term empty property within the
councils area. I'm particularly looking for empty homes owned by
individuals or businesses that I could purchase, renovate and bring back
to use. Would you be able to supply me with these under the Freedom of
Information Act? A spreadsheet will suffice, I require no personal
information simply the property address.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip

FOI, Burnley Borough Council

Thank you for your enquiry. Your enquiry will now be assigned to the
relevant service unit, for an officer to respond directly to you.

Hello

 

Please find below the response to your Freedom of Information request
below:

 

“I am looking for a list of long term empty property within the councils
area. I'm
particularly looking for empty homes owned by individuals or businesses
that I
could purchase, renovate and bring back to use. Would you be able to
supply
me with these under the Freedom of Information Act? A spreadsheet will
suffice, I require no personal information simply the property address.”

 

Response:

 

We are unable to disclose details of empty properties under the Freedom of
Information Act as we believe that Section 31 (1) (a) (Law Enforcement)
exemption is engaged and that the public interest in withholding the
information outweighs the public interest in providing the information.

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the treatment of your request, ask the
council to conduct a review of its decision under the council's complaints
procedure. The review will be carried out by someone who has not been
involved in dealing with your request for information. Please e-mail or
write if you would like a review.

 

If, following the review, you remain dissatisfied with the council's
treatment of your request then you may take your complaint to the
Information Commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire
SK9 5AF.
