Social Housing Waiting Lists

We're waiting for Sarah Northcott to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Plymouth City Council,

Please could you confirm the data you have surrounding the amount of people who are currently on your social housing waiting lists. Could you confirm this for the year 2016-2017 if possible. If however you do not have these, please could you supply the most up to date ones you have. I am only wanting the figures of people who are awaiting a property, not the people who are already housed with yourselves and needing a bigger house etc.

Yours faithfully,
Sarah Northcott
