Dear Common Council of the City of London,
Please could you disclose a list of all high rise social housing blocks of 5+ storeys owned and managed by the City of London.
Dear Danielle Gregory,
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) - REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
The City of London (CoL) acknowledges receipt of your request for information of 17 January 2023.
Public authorities are required to respond to requests within the statutory timescale of 20 working days beginning from the first working day after they receive a request. The Act does not always require public authorities to disclose the information which they hold.
The FOIA applies to the CoL as a local authority, police authority and port health authority. The CoL is the local and police authority for the "Square Mile", ie the historic City of London, and not for London as a whole. Please see the following page containing a link to a map (City of London - Interactive Mapping), which shows the local authority area covered by the CoL:
The CoL does have some functions, including Port Health Authority functions, which extend beyond the City boundary. For further information please see: www.cityoflondon.gov.uk.
