Dear Shearwood, Karan (City of Lincoln Council),

The email that you sent in the last message did not appear, if I need to go through Becky Scott to be more specific about my request is there any way that I could contact you to get that email address?

If not then I can give more clarification about my request here. I would like to request any information you have on how many people have been homeless or sleeping rough over the last 10 years in Lincoln.

1. Please could you provide the number of people who are on a current council waiting list who are homeless.

2. Please could you provide any information on the number of people who are currently sleeping rough in the city.

3. Please could you provide any figures you have on how many people have been reported as homeless over the last 10 years in Lincoln.

4. Please could you share what the present council policy is to address homelessness and how the council is allocating the budget for that.

I'm sorry about not being more specific about my initial request and hope that this helps.

Yours sincerely,

chelsea everett
