Dear Harrogate Borough Council,

I am writing a dissertation on affordable housing provision in the local area. For the purposes of my research, please could you provide a list of all land under H.B.C ownership including it's size and current use where possible.

Please could you also advise how many houses were built by H.B.C and their respective tenure.

Finally, could you advise what borrowing restrictions the housing revenue account imposes on the council?

Many thanks


Foi, Harrogate Borough Council

Dear Rich

Many thanks for your response, if you could provide the information from 2010 onward, that would be much appreciated.

Kind regards



Madeleine Bell has kindly given up time to discuss my dissertation in further detail and helped answer my questions. I can confirm I no longer require this information and am withdrawing the request.

Many thanks for your time.

Kind regards
