Request for Decent Homes External Standard

Matthew watts made this Freedom of Information request to CityWest Homes Limited

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

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, CityWest Homes Limited should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Under the Freedom of Information act, can you please provide the most recent version of the Decent Homes Standard (for works to properties receiving Decent Homes works).

To ensure there is no confusion as to what this document entails I have listed specific details as to what this document contains.

The document will detail the specific level of Decent Homes works taking place in reference to the minimum standard set by the HCA (Homes and Communities Agency).

This document details the minimum level of works each property will receive. It also gives the circumstances for additional or less works that a property is to receive, based on conditions such as its current condition.

This document will detail the minimum level of works taking place on the externals of a property. This may include windows, doors, roofs etc, and further works.

This document will also include the minimum level of works to occur to the internals of the property. This includes the kitchen, bathroom (including specifics for each), as well as the preconditions for a new boiler and electrical works if this is a condition of this councils Decent Homes works.

It would be much appreciated if this could be provided ASAP as opposed to the timescales set out for FOI requests. This will allow Tower Hamlets Homes extra time to consider the content of this document and feed it into the production of our own standard for the next stage of Decent Homes works.

Kind regards

Matthew
