Rehousing Out of Area

We're waiting for David Adams to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Plymouth City Council,

I would like information about the numbers of homeless households being moved both out of and into the local authority area and where they are being moved to and from. I am aware from your reporting requirements to central government that you hold this information but only part of it is released through DCLG statistical updates.

I understand that under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 there is a duty to assist and advise the requester and would appreciate your advice if you think my questions need any clarification in order to get the information that I am looking for.

Please disclose the following information:

1. For each year since 2010, please provide a month by month breakdown of the total number of homeless households the local authority has rehoused in another local authority area. For each household rehoused, please indicate:

- the total number of people rehoused

- the local authority area they were moved to

- whether this was temporary or settled accommodation

- whether they were allocated either council / social housing or a private rental tenancy

2. For each year since 2010, please provide a month by month breakdown of the total number of homeless households the local authority has agreed to rehouse from another local authority area. For each household rehoused, please indicate:

- the total number of people rehoused

- the local authority area they were received

- whether this was temporary or settled accommodation

- whether they were allocated either council / social housing or a private rental tenancy.

Yours faithfully,

David Adams

Plymouth City Council are unable to provide this information. Information
provided via P1Es is anonymised, and cannot be used to feed back on
individual clients. The data was captured in a way to satisfy recording
requirements, and the data provided only details private sector offers out
of area, not all clients. Our database is not configured to search for
this information, and we would need to manually check every record we hold
to see if the information is recorded. This would require checking a total
of 13,504 advice and homeless cases and would require between five and ten
minutes per case (a minimum of 1,125 hours work).

 

Please note that the information supplied can mostly be re-used in
accordance with the Open Government Licence. The council should be
acknowledged as the source of the information, but copyright is maintained

I hope that we have supplied the information that you expected to receive.
If you wish to discuss this letter or the information that is supplied
then please contact me.

handled, you can request a review by writing to me stating the reason for
your dissatisfaction.
