Southend FOI Requests, Southend on Sea Borough Council

Customer Notice: Please do not e-mail Freedom of Information requests for
Southend Borough Council to individual officers. Please instead direct
them to [1][email address] where our central team will
direct their registration and completion.


Dear Ms Shilpa,


Thank you for your request received on 22.07.2020 for information under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004.


In normal circumstances your request should receive a reply by 19.08.2020
however because of the Corona Virus COVID-19 pandemic we have had to
adjust the service we are able to offer.


This is because we are focusing our resources on supporting the local
response to the pandemic and providing essential services such as social
care for adults and children, the Southend Corona Virus Helpline and
financial help for residents and businesses.


All staff who can are working from home and some are being redeployed to
support key services. In addition, some staff are self-isolating or absent
because they or a member of their household has or may have the COVID-19


In addition, while the government restrictions on workplace attendance are
in force, we are not able to gain access to physical records held on site
rather than electronically.


All this means that we may take longer than usual to respond to your
request or may not be able to respond to it at all.



I would be grateful if you would consider whether you can help us focus
our resources on helping our vulnerable residents and businesses by
deferring your request to another time.


If you are willing to withdraw your request, please reply to this email
with the word ‘withdrawn’. Your help would be very much appreciated.



If you have any other queries, please get in touch quoting the FOI
reference number FOI 09842. Where possible please use email as telephone
contact may not always be possible due to revised working arrangements.


Kind regards,
