If you are unable to provide an absolute 'Occupation / Vacancy' status, please provide the Exemptions and / or Reliefs that a particular property may be receiving.

NOTE: While FOI's are meant to be requestor blind, the data is actively used by national government and UK universities to inform the economic response to COVID-19. Most recently, the data was used by MHCLG for the assessment of support to local authorities via the levelling up fund.

Please publish quickly so that organisations trying to support your local authority can do so, and, if you have any difficulties, please contact me so that I may help.

Please provide these data as machine-readable as either a CSV or Microsoft Excel file, capable of re-use, and under terms of the Open Government Licence (reuse for all purposes, including commercial).

Yours faithfully,
