Dear Mrs Oliver,

I wrote to CBC on the 4th January requesting data on allotment waiting lists (see below). I haven't yet had a respose to this, even though by law, the authority should normally have responded promptly and by 1 February 2010. I would be very grateful if you could follow this up.

My request was as follows:
"1) How many allotment sites are there in the council area for which the Council has access to waiting list data?

2) What is the total number of plots on these sites?

3) What is the total number of people on waiting lists for these sites?

4) Are any of these waiting lists closed to further applications?

5) How many new council allotment sites were brought into use in 2009? Please give:
a) number of new sites
b) names of new sites
c) total area of new land in hectares
d) total number of new plots"

Many thanks,

Margaret Campbell
