FOI Req - Empty Residential Properties
1. The total number of residential properties in the council area as of August 2016, broken down by Middle Super Output Area (MSOA); and
2. The total number of residential properties that have been empty for:
a) less than six months; and
b) six months or longer;
as of August 2016, broken down by Middle Super Output Area (MSOA).
I appreciate that the council is required to consider Section 31(1)(a) of the FOI act in providing details of empty properties, and so have limited my request to MSOAs, which with a lower limit of 2,000 households are broad enough areas not to direct people to the precise location of empty properties.
Clarification received 31-08-2016:
If you're able to supply simply single figures for the council area for the questions asked, ignoring any MSOA references, that'd be greatly appreciated.
