Dear Orkney Islands Council,

This is a request for information under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulation Act 2004.

I'd like information on right-to-buy properties bought back or used by the council.

Please provide:

1. A list of residential council-owned properties that were sold by the council through the right-to-buy scheme and subsequently bought back. Please include the address, postcode, date when the property was sold in the right-to-buy scheme, price at which it was sold, date when it was bought back, the price paid for it, and the seller's name (if an organisation).

2. A list of residential council-rented properties currently used for housing that were sold by the council through the right-to-buy scheme. Please include the address, postcode, date when the property was sold in the right-to-buy scheme, price at which it was sold, and the owner's name.

When exact locations need to be redacted to protect vulnerable groups, please preserve as much information as possible (e.g. include postcode).

I'd like to receive the information in an electronic spreadsheet format, such as xlsx or csv.

Best wishes

Paul Dobson

foi, Orkney Islands Council
