Rance, Kevin,

Dear Mr. Wallace,

 

Re: Information Request: FOI 7881

 

Thank you for your information request dated 11^th October 2018 received
in our office the same day.

 

"I searched on your website and couldn't find a copy of your 2018 HMO
Licence Register as prescribed under the Housing Act 2004 s.232 (1) and
the information that is required to be maintained within the register is
described in the The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple
occupation and Other Houses (Miscellaneous Provisions) (England)
Regulations 2006.

 

I have carefully considered your request and investigated whether there is
any additional information available that is not already publicly
available.

 

I have determined that the information you have requested is already
publicly available, and therefore under the Freedom of Information Act
(2000), Section 21 (information accessible to applicant by other means)
this information is exempt from requiring further action in order to make
it accessible to you and the general public.

 

The above exemption specifies that where information is already reasonably
accessible to the applicant there is no duty for the local authority to
provide any additional copy of the material. This may include information
for which a charge applies.

 

This exemption also requires the local authority to inform you where this
information is available from and how to access it. The details of how to
obtain it are provided below:

All applicants have a 'right of appeal'.  An appeal should be focused on
the original request and should identify how the Council’s response failed
to answer your Information Request.  Appeals must be made in writing (or
e-mail) within 40 working days of receipt of this response and addressed
to the Information Governance Appeals Officer, to the address below.

If you are considering re-using the information disclosed to you through
this request, for any purpose outside of what could be considered for
personal use, you are required under the Public Sector Re-use of
Information Regulations 2005 to make an Application for Re-use to the
organisation you have requested the information from. Applications for
Re-Use should be directed to me in the first instance.

 

Please contact me again, quoting your reference number, if you require any
further assistance with your current request and I will do my best to
provide the relevant help and advice.
