Freedom of Information Request about the toilet facilities in London

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council,

I am writing for a formal request of information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA 2000), regarding the toilet facilities in the boroughs of London. Please provide me details of the following questions:

1. How many public toilets are available in your council’s borough?
2. How much did your council spend in maintenance of the public toilets, cleaners etc, during the last financial year 2018/2019?
3. Does your council pay to Transport for London for the toilet services? If yes, how much was this last financial year 2018/2019?
4. How many toilets are out of service in your borough?
5. How many reports for antisocial behaviors have been made during last year, that happened on toilets, and how many toilets have been closed for antisocial behavior or vandalism?

Please give me an accurate answer, in a spreadsheet format, NOT TEXT or PDF, as I need to analyze the data’s.

Yours faithfully,

Santino Pani

Dear Oluchi Uzoma,
Thank you for your response. I am satisfied for almost all your responses. I am only struggling to understand the answer to Q.4, as I find strange that the council does not record reports of toilets closures and it's reason, as any closure - even temporary - incurs in further maintenance expenses by the council, therefore most of councils monitor these activities.
Can you give me an explanation of that? I am conducting this research, and I need to have accurate data’s before publishing it, and of course giving a value “0” to a data is much different from a doubtful one;
i.e. on your answer, if the reason is because there was one incident in 10 years, the data would be irrelevant;
Its meaning would change very much if incidents are not recorded because they happen very frequently, and I want to understand if it is this the case.

Yours sincerely,

Santino Pani
