Good Afternoon

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, dated the 1st October 2012.

This is to inform you that your request has been received and the Council is endeavouring to respond as promptly and fully as possible. You will receive the Council’s response by the 29th October 2012 at the latest. Please quote reference FOI 302-12-13 in any future correspondence.

The Council’s policy is to carry out the spirit and requirements of the Freedom of Information Act in a manner which:

Recognises the duty to inform as the essential principle underlying the legislation; discloses to requesters the maximum information possible which is not injurious to the public and private interests identified in the exemptions in the Act and does so in the most timely and consistent manner given the nature and scope of the request; ensures that fees permitted under the Act are kept to an absolute minimum whilst safeguarding our position as a non profit making repayment department. The Freedom of Information Act can be found here: www.hmso.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/20000036.htm

The Council endeavours to respond in kind unless you request the information in another format. In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, I will let you know. A fees notice will be issued to you, and you will be required to pay before I can proceed to deal with your request.

Please contact me if these conditions are unacceptable or you require further advice or assistance with your information needs.

Many thanks
