  • What was the number of people found to be rough sleeping in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 – 2018?
  • What was the number of people found to be homeless in the area administered by the council in each of the years from 2010 to 2018?
  • How much was spent by the council on schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?
  • How much was spent by the council on ‘Housing First’ style schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010 and 2018?
  • How much was spent by the council from Government grants on ‘Housing First’ style schemes aimed at tackling homelessness in each of the years between 2010-2018?
