2.) In the last financial year (2016-17), how many of these buildings were found to have a Category 1 hazard? This refers to the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).
2b.) How many of these hazards were fire-related? Please list the buildings by address.
3.) How many of these buildings were found to have any other form of potential fire risk/hazard not listed above? For instance, during a standard risk assessment. Please list the buildings, and list the hazards.

If you do not hold the answers to any of the above questions, please exclude from your response and provide the answers to questions you do hold the information for. I am aware that councils hold information differently.
Hastings Borough Council (HBC) does not own any high rise residential blocks. HBC transferred its housing stock to 1066 Housing Association (now part of Optivo) in 1996 as part of LSVT (Large Scale Voluntary Transfer)
