Subject Line: FOI 2122_002835 Acknowledgment
Dear Ellen

Thank you for your request for Spelthorne Borough Council which we received on
15-Apr-2021. We will be dealing with your request for information in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and have assigned it a reference of FOI
2122_002835 and forwarded it to the appropriate department who will respond
directly to you. Under the Act we have 20 working days to respond to your
request.

Dealing with your request: While in normal circumstances we should be able to
(a) confirm or deny that we hold this information and (b) if we hold it, send it
to you within the statutory timescale of 20 working days.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and in line with Government guidance Spelthorne
Borough Council is focusing on maintaining essential services for our residents;
there is an increased demand at this time. Requests will be answered as soon as
is practicable. The ICO has stated that FOI time periods for responses are at
the council's discretion - given that staff have been redeployed with increased
workloads, we cannot guarantee a response within the usual 20 days. You should
note however that the Act defines a number of exemptions which may prevent us
complying with either of these duties. We will explain if this is the case and
if we apply the 'public interest test' to our decision.

If the information is readily available by other means, such as on our website,
we will point you in this direction and would not generally expect to reproduce
it specifically, and we will tell you this as soon as we can.

In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, we will let
you know. A fee notice will be issued to you, and you will be required to pay
before we will proceed with your request.

If you have any queries about this request, please email
[1][email address] quoting the FOI reference number.

Yours sincerely

FOI Team
