Dear Mr Smith,

Thank you for your recent communication which is being managed in line
with the Freedom of Information Act under the above reference number.  The
details of your request are outlined below together with the council’s
response.

Your request

Please supply a list (spreadsheet or similar is fine) of all council
housing under your remit.

Please also supply a list of ex-council housing (ie properties bought out
under right-to-buy etc). I would like the addresses of all properties you
hold on record that have been sold under the RTB scheme.

Our Response

Thurrock Council can confirm that we do hold this information but are
unable to provide all of the data which you have requested as some of it
falls within the scope of the exemption found at section 40 of the FOI
Act, concerning personal information. In addition, the Information
Commissioner has advised against providing household information in The
Code of Practice on Anonymisation:
[1]https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

 

We have also had concerns expressed by residents about use of their
address data for mailing lists. While there is no suggestion that this is
the purpose of your request, once received the data will be accessible
publicly and may be used by others for this purpose.

 

We are able to provide data for larger geographies such as postcode
districts, but not full postcodes, please see below.

Dear Tina,,

Thank you for the information, however this is not enough detail to satisfy my request.

Would you at the very least be able to provide full postcodes. Other councils that I have spoken with have provided full addresses.

I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

I am writing to advise that the investigation of your Internal Review
received on 09 May 2019 has now been concluded. 

Your request

Please supply a list (spreadsheet or similar is fine) of all council
housing under your remit.

Please also supply a list of ex-council housing (ie properties bought out
under right-to-buy etc). I would like the addresses of all properties you
hold on record that have been sold under the RTB scheme.

Request for Internal Review:

 

Thank you for the information, however this is not enough detail to
satisfy my request.

Would you at the very least be able to provide full postcodes. Other
councils that I have spoken with have provided full addresses.

Outcome of Internal Review:

 

I have reviewed the council’s decision to withhold the information
requested and taken into consideration the points you raised in your email
dated 09/05/2019.  It is my view that the council correctly applied the
exemption contained in section 40 of the act – Data Protection to this
request.

 

However, I do feel that the council failed to answer both questions you
raised as no figures were provided to the first part of your request,
namely:

 

Please supply a list (spreadsheet or similar is fine) of all council
housing under your remit.

Please find attached additional information regarding the number of
residential council properties owned by the council. The data provided
also attracts the same exemption as the data already supplied.

As your complaint has been dealt with as an Internal Review, should you
remain dissatisfied you can escalate your concerns to the Information
Commissioners Office and I have included their contact details below:

Address - Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow. Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

T: 0303 123 1113 (Local rate) 01625 545745 (National rate).
