Homelessness and Housing

Request:

“I would like information about the numbers of homeless households being moved both out of and into the local authority area and where they are being moved to and from. I am aware from your reporting requirements to central government that you hold this information but only part of it is released through DCLG statistical updates.

I understand that under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 there is a duty to assist and advise the requester and would appreciate your advice if you think my questions need any clarification in order to get the information that I am looking for.

Please disclose the following information:

1. For each year since 2010, please provide a month by month breakdown of the total number of homeless households the local authority has rehoused in another local authority area. For each household rehoused, please indicate:

 – the total number of people rehoused

 – the local authority area they were moved to

 – whether this was temporary or settled accommodation

 – whether they were allocated either council / social housing or a private rental tenancy

2. For each year since 2010, please provide a month by month breakdown of the total number of homeless households the local authority has agreed to rehouse from another local authority area. For each household rehoused, please indicate:

 – the total number of people rehoused

 – the local authority area they were received

 – whether this was temporary or settled accommodation

 – whether they were allocated either council / social housing or a private rental tenancy.”

 Please note that Devon County Council is not responsible for homelessness and housing and therefore does not hold the information requested.  This service is provided by District and Unitary councils in Devon. Please contact them directly using the information on the links provided to obtain this information.
