FoI Requests, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

Dear Mr. Frankham,

We do not consider your enquiry to fall under the Freedom of Information (FOI) regime, for the reasons given below, so have transferred it to the Department’s correspondence team to be answered by the appropriate policy official.

The Freedom of Information Act (2000) gives individuals and organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as the MHCLG. Section 84 of the Act states that in order for a request for information to be handled as a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, it must be for recorded information. For example, a Freedom of Information request would be for a copy of a policy or other documents, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in place.

When the FOI team receive requests that do not ask for recorded information to be as helpful as possible we transfer these to the Department’s correspondence team for answer as ‘official’ or to be answered by the appropriate policy official . You should receive a response to your enquiry in due course.

The correspondence team can be contacted using the form at http://forms.communities.gov.uk/

I trust this information is of some use you.

Yours sincerely,

FOI Deputy Business Partner
Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
Fry Building, 2 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DF
