FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 6th December 2017.
 
Your request is being considered and, subject to the points made below,
you will receive the information requested as promptly as possible within
the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
 
If we need to obtain more information from you in order to understand what
information you require, we will contact you. If this is the case, the 20
days time limit will not commence until your request has been clarified.
 
The Act defines a number of exemptions that may prevent release of certain
information.  The City Council will consider whether any of these
exemptions apply and, where required by the Act, whether it is in the
public interest to release the information.  If we have to make a public
interest test, the 20 day time limit might be extended. We will inform you
if the time scale has to be extended and if any information is withheld
and of your rights of appeal.
 
The City Council would like to make you aware that disclosure of

The City Council’s standard approach is to provide the information in the
form in which we hold it.  If you require alternative formats, e.g. audio,
large print, etc. or a different language, please let me know and we will
provide it if reasonably practicable to do so. If your request is a
question and we do not hold the answer in recorded form we will try and
provide an answer where we are able unless it requires the creation of new
information.
 
There may be a fee payable for this information request and we will send
you a Fees Notice if this is the case. Any fee must be paid before the

receipt of payment is excluded from the calculation of the 20 working day
time limit.
 
Any personal information you provide in relation to this request will only
be used for the purposes of processing your request for information.

Thank you for your request for information received on 6^th December 2017,
which was considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

information.

 

YOUR REQUEST AND OUR RESPONSE:

 

How many properties do you currently have on Temporary Accommodation?

 

PCC temporary accommodation consists of a mixture of B&B's, temporary
flats that are owned by PCC and managed by the Roberts Centre. We can
confirm that we have 28 temporary flats managed by the Roberts Centre.

 

Please can you advise us on the maximum that is paid per night for a
Studio, 1 Bed, 2 Bed, 3 Bed & 4 Bed.

 

B&B's nightly rate varies from £29 - £85, depending on the household size

bed flats that are charged on a nightly rate of £30.11 + VAT

 

If we were to supply accomodation on this basis, please can you give us
contact names and telephone numbers of the procurement team.

 

Please note, the names and contact details of officers within the
procurement team are exempt from disclosure in accordance with Section
40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act (personal data) as we do not

be disclosed in this way and to do so would therefore breach the First
Principle of the Data Protection Act. In order to be of assistance to you,
we can however advise that the central telephone number for Procurement is
02392 688235. We can also advise that responsibility for procurement falls
under Greg Povey - Assistant Director of Contracts, Procurement and
Commercial. Contact number is 02392 834406.
