When maintenance work on a council dwelling requires access to a neighboring property (e.g. Scaffolding needs to cross a boundary).

The request was successful.

Dear Leeds City Council,

1. Could you please tell me:
How it is established whether the property requiring access is council or private?

2. Could you please tell me:
If it is established that the property is private - then what procedure is followed to contact the owner?

3. Could you please tell me:
If there are any circumstances where you access private property without seeking consent from the owner?

4. Could you please tell me:
Who is ultimately responsible for obtaining correct permission - the council or your contractors?

5. Could you please tell me:
If there is no established procedure to contact the owner or no records kept - how disputes are resolved?

Yours faithfully,

G Allans

DPFOI, Leeds City Council
