Dear Sir/Madam

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF: 2011-030

I am responding to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
which we received on 11 January 2011, for information held by the Council.
You requested:

Can you please send me an up to date list of all RBKC council owned
residential and TMO vacant properties.

Please see attached for a list of TMO voids.

Can you also send me your policy for temporary and permanent housing
allocations within the borough for April 2011 and the order of priority.

Please see attached current Allocations Scheme. This is due to change in
April 2011 but the final version of the new scheme has yet to be agreed.
I also attach the public consultation version of the new scheme which is
currently under revision.

In relation to temporary accommodation, there is no policy which
stipulates how and where applicants should be placed. Each applicant is
subject to an individual suitability assessment which determines the type
and location of the property they will be offered.

For temporary accommodation in the local area, which is in very short
supply, I have attached the criteria which is used to determine whether
applicant(s) should be offered local TA. Bearing in mind that
approximately 70% of all our temporary accommodation is situation outside
Kensington and Chelsea, local properties are allocated strictly in
accordance with the criteria.

with the FOI Act.
