Dear Freedom of Information Officer,

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act
for information to temporary housing provided the council.

Specifically, I would like the following information:

1. The number of people who have been housed in temporary
accommodation after making a homelessness application in each of the
past six years. Please provide a breakdown for each year.

2. The number of people in each of the different types of temporary
accommodation after making a homelessness application in each of the
past six years. By 'type of temporary accommodation' I mean hostels, B
and Bs, council properties, private rentals, etc. The answer to this
could look something like this:

2011 x in Hostels; y in private rentals, etc

Please provide a breakdown for each year.

3. The average length of time people spent in temporary accommodation
after making a homelessness application to the council in each of the
past six years. Please provide a breakdown for each year.

4. The gross cost to the council of temporary accommodation for people
who made homelessness applications in each of the past six years.

Please provide a breakdown of costs for each year by each type of accommodation (2011 £x on Hostels; £y on private rentals, etc.; 2012....)

5. The gross cost of payments to private companies/private individuals who provide temporary accommodation for people who made homelessness applications in each of the past six years. (Eg landlords who own hostels that are used as temporary accommodation; private companies that run centres, etc).

Please provide the names of these private companies/individuals and details of all payments made to each over the last six years. (Eg Company X received £x in 2012, £y in 2013)

I would like this information in electronic form, preferably as a CSV file.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify
all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.

Please let me know you have received this.

If there any problems or you need more information please get in touch.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Geoghegan
