FOI request (FOIR-469975638)
Requested Tue 06 December 2022
Responded Mon 19 December 2022
I am a researcher at Newcastle University interested in looking at Houses of Multiple Occupation and health outcomes.
I am trying to find details of the locations of HMOs in all English Local Authorities for a research study. As the data is not easily accessible centrally, I am having to request the information individually from all Local Authorities in England (which is as you can imagine a very large task!).
Would it be possible for you to please provide me with some high-level data on HMOs from your Local Authority in downloadable form? Ideally I would need the postcode of the HMO (essential), the maximum bedrooms and occupancy (desirable) in an electronic Excel format as I will be combining all the Local Authorities into a single dataset.
I can see the searchable registry on your website, but I need all the HMOs in a pdf or Excel spreadsheet so I can collect all the records.
Many thanks in advance. I would be more than happy to provide a copy of my research if your housing/public health team would be interested.
A copy of the research when completed would be welcome.
The information you have requested is publicly available at:
Hastings Borough Council is unable to provide the information in Excel format, unless you can provide evidence that you hold an Ordnance Survey licence covering addresses in the Hastings area.
