Dear Management, Information,

Thank you for your reply. Somewhat bemused - all district/town councils deny they have any public housing stock. Is it possible for you to tell me who does administer public housing stock in the East Lindsey District.

Yours sincerely,

Bradley Roberts

Management, Information, East Lindsey District Council

Dear Mr Roberts,

There are several social housing providers that operate within the East Lindsey District Council area. However, it was New Linx Housing Trust that East Lindsey District Council transferred its housing stock to in 1999.

I trust that this answers your query.

Amy Jaines - Information Governance Officer

Dear Management, Information,

Thank you for your reply.

Does this mean that the council plays no part in housing social cases (ie unmarried mothers etc) or housing those on any housing list; the only parties concerned being the housing trust and social services or other bodies.

Yours sincerely,

Bradley Roberts
