Social Housing

Request

I would like to request the data on the percentage figures of the allocation of Social Housing in your County. I am requesting figures on the following:

What is the breakdown of social housing under your jurisdiction since 2003;

-Number of properties by number of bedrooms

-Number of properties occupied by tenants from the UK

-Number of properties occupied by tenants from any other EU-28 country, and if possible, detail which country

-Number of properties occupied by non-UK non-EU nationals, and if possible, detail which country

-Number of properties occupied by asylum seekers

What is the length of the waiting list for social housing in your area?

Is there a shortage of a particular type of property, such as three bedroom family home?

Do you have any statistics for the origins of people on the waiting list?

Please could you also direct me to any online resources which are relevant to this request?
