I would like the following questions answered:
1. How much money have you received in Decent Homes funding in the financial years 2007/2008, 2008/2009, 2009/2010, 2010/2011, 2011/2012?
2. Please can you send me a breakdown of your bidding documents for each of these years?
Charnwood Borough Council did not receive any Decent Homes funding in the years listed in your request. The Arms length management company who were set up to perform the landlord function for our housing stock were not eligible to apply for the funding as they did not meet the required criteria.
In 2011 the council bid for and were awarded Decent Homes Backlog Funding available through the Homes and Communities Agency to invest in a programme of improvement to our housing stock, with £11 million awarded between 2011-2015.
