Parking

The council does not allocate the surplus on its parking account to specific areas of expenditure because income and expenditure is managed at directorate level.

We have therefore used the surplus to offset other Place Directorate-wide expenditure including Streetscene Highways and seasonal weather (which includes gritting and weather-related road repairs).

Procurement

Social housing

The authority values its social housing stock using a relatively small number of sample properties from which all other property values have been derived and must be therefore treated as indicative only.

The EUV-SH Value is the Existing Use Value as Social Housing. It represents the tenanted sale value, indicating the value assuming each dwelling continues to be let as social housing in future and might be considered to be the sum that another registered social housing provider would pay to acquire the property.

The Market Value is an estimate of the open market value.

Public health funerals

These are funerals arranged under Section 46 of The Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984

Kirklees Council receive a number of Freedom of Information requests in relation to burials or cremations that have been undertaken by the Council, where there has been no next of kin and where information has been transferred to the treasury solicitor. We only provide information that can’t be obtained via the bona vacantia website and we don’t provide the full address and value of the estate for security reasons.

Our spreadsheet gives the number of funerals, average cost and amount recovered. It will be updated annually.
