Freedom of Information Request

'Obsolete' homes

Received: 29 July 2022

Noting that the Mayor of London has confirmed that 2021-26 GLA Affordable Homes Programme grants have been awarded for the demolition and replacement of 54 homes in Barnet (see https://www.london.gov.uk/questions/2022/1007) that have been exempted from restrictions on grants for demolished homes on the grounds they have been classed as 'obsolete,' could you tell me:

1. How many of the 54 'obsolete' home replacement grants were claimed by Barnet Council (since the data above relates only to homes in the borough and could also be for other social landlords)?

2. For any of these homes (or groups of homes) owned by Barnet Council: a. Where each of these are or were located, b. Which of these currently have tenants or leaseholders occupying them, and c. What criteria were used to decide whether each of these were 'obsolete'?

3. Could you also supply to me copies of supporting evidence related to 'obsolete' status that was sent to the GLA to back up any relevant grant applications?
