Dear Islington council

RE: Freedom Of Information Act 2000 – Information Request – Unused / Derelict Properties

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. To help guide you with the information retrieval, I have focused my request in the below categories.

As part of the decisions made by multiple councils to release its list of all “long-term” empty domestic and commercial properties, such as Lambeth and Bexley, and the decision by Judge Fiona Henderson to order Camden Council to make public its list of empty housing, could you please send me a copy of the:

(a) addresses of all empty or unused privately owned homes, which have been empty for more than 12 Months, that are within the Islington Borough.
(b) addresses of all empty or unused council owned homes, which have been empty for more than 12 Months,, that are within the Islington Borough.
(c) addresses of all empty or unused commercial properties, which have been empty for more than 12 Months,, that are within the Islington Borough.
(d) the addresses stated within (a), (b) and (c), which have had Planning Applications submitted within the previous 24 Months.
(e) the status of the Planning Applications stated in (d), either Approved, Rejected or Withdrawn.

In considering this request, I hope you will take into account
Judge Henderson's statement on releasing the empty housing and derelict commercial buildings list.

As this information aids the regeneration of unused and frequently dangerous housing, the release of such information is aligned with section 85 of the Local Government Act 2003, the Empty Housing Briefing Papers (May 2016) and Housing Act 2004.

I would like to receive the information in electronic format if possible. If you need further clarification, please contact me by email or phone.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have
received this request. I look forward to your response

Yours faithfully,

Mr panayiotis Panayi
