Thank you for your recent request for information.

Your request is covered by the Environmental Information Regulations, which requires us to respond within 20 working days.

Please Note - Due to Government guidance in relation to the Coronavirus we are currently working remotely which may affect our ability to access records which are held in hard copy, or within our archives. Additionally, if the situation worsens and staff become unwell, we may not be able to gather from them the information to satisfy your request in full. We will continue to disclose all electronic data we have access to, and any undisclosed data held will be made available to you once we are able to access the material, subject to any applicable exemptions.

We will determine and let you know whether we hold the information you have requested and consider whether we are able to release the information or if it is exempt from disclosure.

ECC does not usually charge for providing information to its requestors as the provision of electronic copies is negligible, however under certain circumstances we may have to do so if providing the information costs more than £25. We will let you know before we do any work that would incur a charge.

Please note that the response and data released to you as part of this request will be published on the Essex County Council website.

Dear Emma Jones,

Thank you for your recent request for information. In order for us to process your request we are seeking clarification:

You have asked for information on 'grounds maintenance' positions. It might be worth clarifying that the majority of facilities maintenance and operations across Essex County Council's sites are outsourced, so the external suppliers will have completed most of the hiring of people into those types of roles.

We have a small number of 'Caretakers/General Hands' and 'Facilities assistants' - Please can you confirm that these are what you are looking for?

Your request will be closed and logged as a new request once we receive clarification from you.

Please Note - Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak we are currently working remotely. This has impacted our ability to access data to respond to requests for information.

Our staff are focussed on supporting the front-line delivery of our services, for example social care and public health to protect the most vulnerable in our society, and are not always able to provide to us with data for responding to requests as they normally would.

We would like to apologise for this disruption to our service and assure you that we will continue to process requests, however it is likely there will be a significant delay in our response to you.

Yours Sincerely
