Freedom of Information Request

Housing Benefits - Supported Accommodation

Received: 18 December 2020

I would like to appeal the decision that you are refusing to provide this information on the grounds of cost.

I am assuming this is based on the LA considering this data needs to be extracted manually which is not the case.

The information requested is available through the Housing Benefit processing system, the data I am requesting is produced on a regular basis by the Housing Benefit Team as part of their subsidy return - this is a statutory requirement of the LA claiming subsidy repayments and administration awards. In the response the LA have said they use the rent officer process to consider these claims and claims where the rent officer decision is being applied and HB is paid over that limit a subsidy penalty is applied and therefore the LA must hold that information.
