Further to additional clarification received for this FOI request, Hastings Borough Council (HBC) does not hold information on 16/17 year olds temporary accommodation placements. This is dealt with by East Sussex County Council Children's Services as they make these placements. Please visit their website for further information:
For households aged 18 and over, HBC has never placed households in holiday lets via Airbnb or Booking.com.
