East Devon District Council

Dear Ms McKimm-Sandford,

Thank you for your request for information. Please find the response to your query below.

You requested information in respect of the level of Housing Benefit paid to providers of exempt accommodation in 2017-2018. We have looked at the FOI and interpreted "Exempt Accommodation" as Exempt Support Accommodation and "with a sleep in room" as an additional bedroom for an overnight carer.

We are unable to provide this information as our Exempt Support Accommodation cases are all assessed under different rent schemes. Our system only holds property and room details and additional room requirement data if they are a Housing Association or fall under the Local Housing Allowance scheme.

I hope this information is helpful but, if you feel dissatisfied with the way we have responded to your request, please contact our Monitoring Officer, Mr Henry Gordon Lennox, to request an internal review [email address]

You may also approach the Information Commissioner for advice at www.ico.org.uk

Yours sincerely,

Sara
