Dear Mr Atherton
FOI Request ref 2877 / Atherton / Damp Homes
I am writing in response to your request regarding the above.
You asked for information on the above. Unfortunately the County Council
does not hold this information, as this is the responsibility of the
District and Borough Councils. If you have not already also written to
those authorities, the link below contains the relevant contact details.
I hope that this answers your enquiry. 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
[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. Tel: 0303 123 1113. www.ico.org.uk
