Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests

FOI request: Short-term lets

Received: 16 October 2018

To whom it may concern, Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek access to information about your council's planning permissions for and investigations into short-term let properties. I would like to know for the financial years 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18: 1. The total number of planning applications granted featuring a change of use from C3 (dwelling) to C1 (hotels or guesthouses). 2. The number of properties that have been investigated for short-term letting in breach of Section 44 of the Deregulation Act, and if possible a breakdown of the outcomes of these investigations. If you need any clarification then please do not hesitate to contact me. Under Section 16 it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.
