Dear Mr Woodward
Thank you for your request for information.
Please be advised that the information you are requesting is not held at Elmbridge Borough Council. As a district council we do not provide supported living/residential accommodation in the categories you mention. However, Surrey County Council may hold the information you are seeking.

The Council operates a presumption of openness in its access to information. It provides much information outside the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as usual” basis. Persons do not need to engage the statutory provisions to access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.

Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to Head of Legal Services, Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD.
