Dear Rabyah Khan,

 

Further to the request below, I can respond to your Freedom of Information
Act 2000 request received on 31^st October 2021 as follows:

 

 

Homelessness

 

Number of homeless decisions for applicants under 40:

2010/11 – 55+163+16+6+101 = 341

2011/12 – 57+150+16+2+104 = 329

2012/13 – 33+115+17+1+89 = 255

2013/14 – 47+37+14+1+97 = 196

2014/15 – 33+56+15+3+88 = 195

2015/16 – 31+55+18+4+101 = 209

2016/17 – 29+34+15+5+88 = 171

2017/18 – 43+33+13+1+60 = 150

 

Number of applicants under 40 assessed as owed a duty under the Homeless
Reduction Act:

2018/19 – 420 (113 of which were at risk of losing or had lost their
private sector tenancy)

2019/20 – 342 (112 of which were at risk of losing or had lost their
private sector tenancy)

2020/21 – 330 (70 of which were at risk of losing or had lost their
private sector tenancy)

 

Please note. It would be worth noting that figures for 2020/21 are lower
due to a ban on evictions being in place for most of the year.

 

 

If you disagree with any part of the response to your request, you are
entitled to ask the Council for an internal review of the decision(s)
made.  You may do this by writing to the Monitoring Officer, by either
email – [1][email address] – or by post to Monitoring Officer, Oxford
City Council, St Aldate’s Chambers, St Aldate’s, Oxford, OX1 1DS.  After
the result of the internal review, if you remain dissatisfied, you may ask
the Information Commissioner to intervene on your behalf.  You may do this
by writing to the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Joyce Fagan

Dear freedomofinformation,

Thank you.

Please can you explain why the figures for homeless decisions has more than halved since 2010/11?

Yours sincerely,

Rabyah Khan

Dear Ms Khan

Your question is not a valid request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is asking for an opinion/explanation not for recorded information held by the Council.

Therefore we are not able to help you in this matter.

Kind regards

Sal Bartlett | Information Governance Administrator| Law & Governance | SA1.2B | Oxford City Council | St Aldates Chambers | St Aldates | Oxford | OX1 1DS |
