NOTICE OF REFUSAL
The information you have requested would require us to manually check 350 cases (350 households) to identify which ones are 'temporary accommodation' and of these which one were solely 'refuge' to either include or exclude them from the figures 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 Total spend can be provided either as net or gross, initially we thought that it related to people fleeing domestic violence, but having reread the question following clarification we believe it relates to 'total costs for temporary accommodation'. We hold the following figures that relate to B&B and Annexe costs: 2010/11 Gross: £169,281.20 Net: £58,983.00 2011/12 Gross:£148,904.08 Net: £62,309.20 2012/2013 Gross = £287,026.52 Net = £137,515.59 2013/2014 Gross = £240,051.79 Net = £93,125.25 2014/2015 Gross = £326,601.88 Net = £146,328.68 2015/2016 Gross = £315,343.37 Net = £110,494.27
