Dear Sir/Madam

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF: 2017-1269

 

I am responding to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
which we received on 21 August 2017, for information held by the Council.
Your request is as follows:

 

1.  The total number of tenanted and leasehold properties currently within
RBKC?

 

We don’t hold this information as we only hold information on the
properties that we manage (see below)

 

2.  The total  number of tenanted and leasehold properties currently
within RBKC managed by KCTMO?

 

General Needs homes:                                       6618

Housing for Older People                                    172

Hostels                                                             62

Other (key worker, non-social housing, etc)         10

Leasehold properties                                          2594

 

KCTMO also manage the travellers’ site at Stable Way.

 

3.  The total number of properties currently within RBKC under
self-management?

 

We assuming you are referring to options like TMOs – so all of the above
are managed by a Tenant Management Organisation.

 

4.  The total number of tenanted and leasehold properties currently under
consideration of redevelopment by RBKC within RBKC?

 

The Council has no current redevelopment proposals affecting residential
property it owns or controls. All previous potential projects are either
on hold pending future review or are deleted.

 

5.  The total number of RBKC housing stock under notification of
regeneration?

 

None

 

6.  The total number of RBKC social housing stock (homes) that have been
sold to private concerns for redevelopment in the last five years?

 

None

 

7.  The current total square footage of all tenanted and leasehold housing
stock within RBKC?

 

The TMO we cannot fully answer this question. Information on the square
footage of their properties is held for some but not all homes.

 

Complaints

 

I trust this has satisfied your request. Should you be unhappy with the
handling of your request, the Council has an internal complaints process
for handling FOIA complaints. Complaints are reviewed by the Chief
Solicitor and Monitoring Officer or her nominee. A form is available from
our website to lodge your complaint
[1]http://www.rbkc.gov.uk/councilanddemocra...
Please contact us if you do not have website access and we can provide you
with a copy of the form. Following this review, should you still be
unhappy with how your information request has been handled, you have a
further right to appeal to the Information Commissioner who is responsible
for ensuring compliance with FOIA.  

 

Yours faithfully
