Dear Bristol City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Bristol City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Minutes and emails in relation to the Bristol Housing Festival and BCC'.

The response to this request was meant to be provided by December 23 but I have yet to receive it.

Yours faithfully,

Joanna Booth

Dear ‎Ms Booth‏

information or focusing on the information that is most important to you. 

  

Please note that any refined request we receive will be treated as a fresh
request and we cannot guarantee that any relevant exemptions  under the
FOI Act will not apply to a revised request. 

 
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should sent to [1][email address].
 
 
If you are still dissatisfied with the Council's response after the
internal review you have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner
