Dear Mr Knights

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

I am writing to inform you that unfortunately your request for information cannot be processed.

This is because locating and retrieving the information exceeds the “appropriate limit” as stated in the Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004. The Authority estimates that the cost of complying with the request would exceed the ‘appropriate limit of 18 hours work.

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 this letter acts as a Refusal Notice.

You may wish to refine and resubmit your request so that it reduces the cost to within the “appropriate limit”. Please contact me if you would like some advice on refining your request.

You have the right of appeal against the decision. If you wish to appeal please set out in writing your grounds of appeal and send to the Freedom of Information Officer at the address below.

You also have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, www.informationcommissioner.gov.uk
