FOI 12585

Cannabis cultivation in council housing

Request


I'm contacting local authorities that have (or had until recently) council housing stock, in order to gather data about cases of cannabis cultivation in social/affordable rented homes.


I'd be grateful if you could supply me with the following information, as an Excel spreadsheet:


1. For each of the financial years 2006/07 to 2015/16:


(a) How many social/affordable rented homes did your authority own as of the end of the financial year?
(b) How many tenancy enforcement cases involving cannabis cultivation occurred in your authority's social/affordable rented properties?
(c) How many tenant(s) were evicted as a result of cannabis cultivation?
(d) How many tenant(s) received suspended/postponed possession orders as a result of cannabis cultivation?

2. For each of the financial years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16:

How many of the cases involving cannabis cultivation identified in Q1 (b) occurred in properties affected by the 'bedroom tax'?


If your authority has had no stock since before 2006/07, apologies for wasting your time and please disregard this request.
