I am requesting information on council properties managed by ‘guardian agencies’, whereby your empty buildings are protected from squatters and vandals by having people living in them.

I am seeking information about properties that your council protects in this way..

Could I request the data as set out in the table below, for each property that was managed by a guardian agency or any properties returned in the last year.

Address and postcode of property Guardian agency Council tax paid on the property Number of bedrooms in property (if applicable) Square footage of property Type of property Price paid by the council per week Starting date of contract


Charnwood Borough Council does not use ‘Guardian Agencies’ in relation to our housing stock or commercial properties.
