I am requesting information on council properties managed by ‘guardian agencies’, whereby your empty buildings are protected from squatters and vandals by having people living in them.
I am seeking information about properties that your council protects in this way.
Could I request the data as set out in the table below, for each property that was managed by a guardian agency or any properties returned in the last year.
Address and postcode of property
Council tax paid on the property
Number of bedrooms in property (if applicable)
Square footage of property
Type of property
Price paid by the council per week
Starting date of contract
Brentwood Borough Council does not use Guardian Agencies on their void properties
