FOI request (FOI214989)
Requested Wed 07 June 2017
Responded Wed 07 June 2017
I would like to request the number of recorded deaths for homeless people in your local authority for the time period 01/01/2015 - 15/5/2017. This would include all who had an open homelessness application, accessed homeless services or was known to be a rough sleeper by your local authority.
I would like the information broken down by month and by age of the deceased.
NOTICE OF REFUSAL
The information you have requested would require us to manually check approx. 3000 cases therefore would exceed the time limit set out by the Information Commissioner therefore under S12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides an exemption from the obligation to comply with a request for information if the estimated costs of complying with that request would exceed the prescribed appropriate limit. We estimate that the costs of complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit by a significant amount. For this reason we feel unable to comply with this question.
