Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

I wanted to get in touch to see if you'd please be able to help me with a few of these questions, relating to your area.

I would like to know..
1. How many Blue Badge holders are in your area?
2. How many council-owned parking spaces there are?
3. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are for Blue Badge holders?
4. How many of these council-owned parking spaces are parent-child spaces?
5. How many fines are, on average, given out, to those that park in Blue Badge spaces that aren't allowed to park there?
6. The same for parent-child spaces.

If you could please get back to me as soon as you can, that would be really great.

Many thanks!
Emma

Dear Emma

Thank you for your request dated today's date and I regret to inform you that "Emma" is not a valid name for the purposes of Section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Section 8(1) of the FOIA sets out the requirements of a valid request for information and says that a request must, amongst other things, "state the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence". The ICO has issued guidance on what is an acceptable name and states that the use of the phrase "the name of the applicant" in section 8(1) (b) indicates that the real name of the applicant should be used when requesting information.

See the ICO’s guidance document Recognising a Request made under the FoI Act (Section 8) paragraphs 14 onwards, particularly paragraph 25. In order for your request to comply with this requirement, I would be grateful if you could provide your full name.

The Information Commissioner considers that a relatively informal approach is appropriate and therefore title and or first name with a surname satisfies the requirement for provision of a real name, as does the use by a female applicant of her maiden name. The prime consideration is whether enough of a person's full name has been provided to give a reasonable indication of that person's identity.

In the circumstances and, in order that I can process your request, can you please provide me with your surname.

If you should require any further information or assistance then please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course

If you are not content with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Requests for internal reviews should be addressed to the Monitoring Officer, 1st Floor, Civic Centre 3, Market Street, Huddersfield HD1 2EY. Alternatively, you can send an email to: [email address].

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

If you are not content with the outcome of any review you have the right under section 50 of the 2000 Act to apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether your request for information has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the Act. The Information Commissioner’s website is at www.ico.org.uk and gives more information about the role and duties of the Commissioner. The ICO telephone helpline on 0303 123 1113 or 01625 545745 is available between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
