Non Traditional Housing Stock

Marc Buck made this Freedom of Information request to Your Homes Newcastle

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Your Homes Newcastle,
I am currently researching Non Traditional Housing Stock in the UK.
Having spoken to Eric Heatherington former Consultant engineer for Your Homes Newcastle, I understand that you may be in possession of a certain material & documentation that may assist with my research.

Please provide a copy of the documentation listing the street locations of all BISF Houses in the UK.
Please provide a detailed list of all Non-Traditional Housing stock owned or controlled by YHN and include street location and build type.

I also understand that YHN is in possession of a number of cross sectional diagrams and sketches that relate specifically to various Non-Traditional construction types. If possible could you please produce copies of these.

I am particularly interested in the structure, maintenance and repair of Non-Trad buildings, a number of which have been renovated by YHN in a variety of ways. I also understand that you hold a number of photographs depicting various repairs to such properties including before and after photographs and photographs of common faults found per build type.
If possible could you please provide copies of these images?

My overall aim is to obtain as much information as possible with regard to identifying and maintaining non-traditional constructed properties both historically and present.
I would be most grateful if you could provide any further documentation that you may deem suitable to assist in this research.

Yours faithfully,

Marc Buck

Dear Caroline Hayes (YHN),

Thank you for you detailed response and supporting documents which have been well received.

One small point though Caroline, as per the first paragraph of my request regarding my conversation with Mr Heatherington during which he stated that YHN were in possession of documents that listed every street location in the UK where BISF houses had been built shortly after the second World War.
Eric stated that this list was located within the offices of YHN and that it would provide valuable research information.
Can you please supply a copy of this data?

At present I am making a list of every street location in the UK manually through exhaustive and lengthy research. A copy of the said document would be most advantageous and I would appreciate your efforts in locating this file.

My thanks and best Regards

Marc Buck

    Appendix from Non Trad Guide council locations for Northern Non Trads.pdf

Good morning Marc

Thank you for your email.

I have gone back and checked with our Asset Information team and can tell you the following:

The attached PDF shows the councils across the northern region where there are specified Non Traditional house types. It is not wonderful quality, but if you zoom in to the row for BISF, you should be able to see which councils other than Newcastle built them.

The report it came from was published by Northern Consortium of Housing Authorities (NCHA) in 1988 and revised 1997, but we have no further information since this time.

I hope this is useful.

Regards
Caroline
