Freedom of Information, East Sussex County Council

Dear C Eames

 

Thank you for your request for information. Your request was received on
28/07/2014 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

We always aim to respond as quickly as possible, but in this case I am
refusing your request as it is not valid. An email address is sufficient
for delivery of requested information but there is a requirement under the
Act for a requester to provide their “real name”. I refer you to Section 8
FOIA, which I have copied below, and specifically to 8(1)(b).

 

8 Request for information.

 

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1) In this Act any reference to a “request for information” is a
reference to such a request which—

(a) is in writing,

(b) states the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence,
and

(c) describes the information requested.

 

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)(a), a request is to be treated as
made in writing where the text of the request—

(a) is transmitted by electronic means,

(b) is received in legible form, and

(c) is capable of being used for subsequent reference.

 

There are a number of reasons why a requester must supply their real name.
These include the following:

 

·         a request is being made by the applicant for his/her own
personal data and so would be exempt under section 40(1) of the FOIA (and
would comprise a subject access request under the Data Protection Act
1998);

·         a public authority has good reason to believe a requester is
using a pseudonym to shield his/her identity in order to avoid the
possibility of the request being considered as vexatious or repeated; or

·         determining whether to aggregate costs for two or more requests
in accordance with the Fees Regulations.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office supports the view that it was the
intention of the legislation that an applicant should provide their real
name so that the request can be processed in accordance with the
requirements of the FOIA. A first name only is insufficient. Please see
the attached ICO Guidance and the extract copied below.

 

Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts could satisfy section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA by
stating his name in a request for information as “Arthur Roberts”, “A. T.
Roberts”, or “Mr Roberts”, but not by stating his name as “Arthur” or
“A.T.R.”

 

Could you please clarify what information you are requesting You have used
the heading Accident - a27 travelling north on Polegate by pass at
junction of a27 approach to roundabout  leading to a22, then you have gone
on to request , I would be grateful if you would provide the following
information in relation to a section of Frittenden road in Frittenden,
starting from the cross road between Common road and Frittenden road to
the T-junction between London road and Frittenden road.

These  are two different areas, and the only road details concerning
Frittenden Road appears to be in Kent. Could you please be more specific
if these roads are in East Sussex.

 

If you believe that the County Council has not complied with the FOI Act
in responding to your request, you may ask for an internal review. If you
wish to do so, please set out the grounds of your appeal in writing to:

 

Philip Baker, Assistant Director, Legal and Democratic Services, East
Sussex County Council, County Hall, St Anne’s Crescent, Lewes, East
Sussex. BN7 1UE.

or by email to him at [1][email address]

 

Please quote the FOI reference number in any communication regarding this
particular request.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you then
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision
unless you have exhausted the County Council’s internal review procedure
as described in the previous paragraph. The Commissioner can be contacted
at: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.  [2]Tel: 0303 123 1113.  [3]www.ico.gov.uk

 

 

Yours sincerely

Dear C Eames

 

EIR Request ref:  4296 / Safety Inspections in Frittenden Road in

My colleague sent you a partial refusal on the grounds of no name
provided. This was in error as the name that you have provided is
sufficient for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act. In any
event, I have assessed your request as falling under the terms of the
Environmental Information Regulations, which require no name to be
provided.

 

However, we do still require clarification my colleague has asked for
before we will be able to process your request and it is on hold pending
receipt of your clarification.

 

Please quote the above reference number in any communications regarding

Dear Freedom of Information,

Hello sorry for confusion, I have no idea where Frittenden came into this.

I was travelling north on A27 on the Polegate by pass and about to enter the roundabout that leads to the A22.
The road surface on entry to the roundabout was severely damaged and there was no white line at the entrance to the roundabout. I applied brakes to my motorbike but the back wheel slipped from under me and I crashed to the road.
The remainder of my request refers only to this section of road where my accident occurred.
I hope that is clearer.

Yours sincerely,

C Eames
