Dear Darlington Borough Council,

Please may I have the following under the FoIA 2000?

Where I live has the orange pull string cords but is not classed as "sheltered housing" but I do not know despite trying what this type of housing is called, so I am looking first for clarity then availabilty figures for the same type of housing within the borough.

A, As I know DBC knows my address (if not ask Lee Downey in Complaints who does have it) please can you tell me the term DBC uses to classify this type of property that I live in with orange strings for disabled people?

B, Of this type of housing how many alike properties does DBC have on its social housing books?

C,

1, Could I have the answer to question "B" broken down firstly by numbers in each ward? (full list)

2, Could I then have that same question broken down by bedroom numbers? (equally on a ward basis)

D, Since the introduction of the vile "bedroom tax" how many people living in a property of this type have downgrade from a 2 to 1 bedroom home?

E, Could I have a copy/s of any policy documents which deals with disabled people who cannot downgrade due to lack of suitable property and as such having to pay "bedroom tax" within DBC?

F, How many people applied in 2013 for DHP? and how many were granted their application?

G, How many people applied in 2014 for DHP? and how many were granted their application?

H, How many have appealed against their "bedroom Tax" from April 1st 2014, the start of the second financial year of DBC implementing this "Tax"?

Yours faithfully,
