Question

I request information as to whether or not your local authority has used, currently uses/has installed anti-homelessness/rough sleeping devices/technology and whether the local authority has a current policy on the use of such devices/technology/design (or if you hold any communication explicitly commenting on this matter). 


Examples of such devices/technology/infrastructure are:
* Spikes 
* Studs
* Bars (on benches/against walls etc)
*  Benches with vertical slats between each seat
* wall railings which enable leaning but not sitting or lying

* erection of slopes in doorways/against buildings 


Please note this is not an exhaustive list, but merely examples anti-homelessness/rough-sleeping devices/technology/design.

Answer

I can confirm that the Comhairle does not use any anti-homelessness devices now or in the past.
