Dear Mr. Mann

Request for Information

 

I refer again to your e-mail of 26 May 2023 seeking information in
relation to occupied homes.

 

Having investigated, I regret to advise you that the information as sought
is not held and in terms of Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002, I must advise you of this.  By way of some
explanation, while we can run “snapshot” reports for the data requested,
they cannot be run retrospectively and therefore we cannot provide the
data held on 5 April for the years specified.

 

To be of some assistance, please find set out below snapshot data from
reports ran on the following dates.

 

3/8/2019 – 152,877 homes occupied.

 

4/4/2020 – 152,252 homes occupied.

 

15/4/2021 – 152,725 homes occupied.

 

2/4/2022 – 154,332 homes occupied.

 

2/4/2023 – 155,326 homes occupied.

 

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision
by writing to the Chief Officer (Legal and Democratic), Civic Centre,
Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you are
dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the
Chief Officer (Legal and Democratic).

 

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who
is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section
21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local
authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice -
may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a
decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the
request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt
with in accordance with the Act.  Such an application must be made within
six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form
which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for
subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the applicant
and provide an address for correspondence. The application must also
specify the request for information to which the requirement for review
relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction
with the original decision of the local authority and the matter which
gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the decision on review
by the local authority or the failure of the local authority to issue such
a decision.  The Scottish Information Commissioner can be contacted as
follows:-

 

Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St. Andrews

KY16 9DS

email: [1][email address]

 

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online
via the following link: -

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please
let me know.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Angelene Kirkpatrick
