Dear Ms Thomas Freedom of Information Act 2000
I can confirm that the information requested is held by Bristol City Council.
Please find attached the requested correspondence in accordance with your request. Please note
that various names and contact details have been redacted as we are of the view that s.40(2) of
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is engaged and they are therefore being withheld as
We take the view that officers who are third tier and above are of sufficient level of seniority that
the reasonable expectation would be that their names would be disclosed but that below that
level the opposite would be true unless there are compelling reasons for disclosure.
Please quote the reference number 3196741 in any future communications.
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal
review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of
