FOI Request - Council Properties Overcrowding & Under Occupation

Request 101000200712

I would like to ask a Freedom of Information request to your Council regarding overcrowding and under occupying in your locality.

1. How many of your council properties are occupied by tenants that are on your waiting list to downsize to a property with a) 1 bedroom, b) 2 bedrooms?

2. How many of your council properties with a) 1 bedroom, b) 2 bedrooms are occupied by tenants who are overcrowded?

3. How many of your council properties with a) 1 bedroom, b) 2 bedrooms have you been able to fill with tenants who had applied to be downsized to those properties, since 1 April 2013?

4. How many overcrowded council properties with a) 1 bedroom, b) 2 bedrooms, the occupants of which have you been able to rehouse to bigger more appropriate properties, since 1 April 2013? (to clarify, I am interested in the number of overcrowded properties that have seen change rather than the number of tenants in those overcrowded properties)
