Dear Sean

 

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000

Environmental Information Regulations 2004

Reference No: 4722686

 

Thank you for your request for information held by London Borough of
Lewisham. Please find below, your questions followed by our responses:

 

1       Please let me know how we can become a supplier of Exempt
Accommodation and what documents are required

2       Who should be contacted, if we wished to be supplier of Exempt
Accommodation, please provide names, job titles, department, email address
and contact number.

 

For Q1 and Q2- the Council no longer operates a restricted framework and
tenders for supported accommodation are published through the London
tenders portal:

 

[1]https://www.londontenders.org/

 

 

3       Who should be contacted, if we wished to be supplier of Temporary
Accommodation, please provide names, job titles, department, email address
and contact number.

 

[2][email address]

Telephone- 0208314-8030

 

 

4       Please advise on the current demand by your Authority for more
Temporary Accommodation(Nightly Lets) property stock.

 

 

We apply Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, ‘Information
reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means’, to this question:

 

Section 21 states:

 

(1) Information which is readily available to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)-

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or upon payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

 

This acts as an exemption notice. Subsection 1 means that the Council is
relieved of the duty to communicate the requested information to an
applicant if there is an existing method by which the information can be
obtained, outside of the operation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
This is an absolute exemption and therefore does not require the public
interests balancing test to be applied.

 

We confirm that the requested information can be accessed through a public
website using the following link:

We hope you will find this information helpful.
