Dear Sir

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 4^th August 2014.

 

I can confirm that there is not a specified annual budget for buffets. 
You also requested what the annual CCBC expenditure was on buffets in the
financial year 2013/14.

 

I can confirm that the Council holds information falling within the
description specified in your request, but we are refusing to supply this
information under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

We estimate that the cost of complying with your request would exceed the
appropriate limit of £450 for local government, which is specified in the
Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limits and Fees)
Regulations 2004.  Therefore we are refusing to supply this information
under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

In order to determine whether your request exceeds this limit, we must
multiply an estimate of the time we expected to take to in comply with
your request by £25 per hour.  If the cost of complying with your request
would exceed the appropriate limit of £450 (more than 18 hrs), we can
refuse your request.  In making this calculation we are able to include
the time taken to determine whether we hold the information and time taken
to locate, retrieve and extract the information.  The hourly rate of £25
per hour is set by the Fees Regulations and is not dependent on the
seniority of the officer who carries out the work.

 

If you are able to re-focus your request, so that the cost of complying
with it falls below the appropriate limit  of £450, we may be able to
supply the information to you.  If you would like our assistance in
re-focusing the request please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

If you have any queries or concerns or are in any way dissatisfied with
the handling of your request please contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
