Freedom of Information Request

New Homes

Received: 16 August 2019

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from your council.

1. How many new homes for social rent or London Affordable Rent, that are not funded by grant from the Greater London Authority (so from Section 106 contributions, borrowing, Right to Buy receipts, cross-subsidy or other sources) have been started by the Council in each of the last five financial years? I am asking about homes built by the Council itself (or any companies owned by the council), rather than homes built by Housing Associations and other registered providers in the borough.

2. In each of the last five financial years:
a) How much of the much (in £) of the receipts of Right to Buy sales have been retained by the Council?
b) How much of the much (in £) of the receipts of Right to Buy sales have been returned to the Government?
c) How many new council homes for social rent or London Affordable Rent have been supported by Right to Buy receipts?

Please provide the information in the form of a text response to the question asked or in a table or spreadsheet format where appropriate.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for ' see my details below.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response
