Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

Further to your recent FOI response in regards to expenditure for maintenance of Pennington Tea Rooms. I am interested in the figure that you provided for maintenance on the building:-

"Maintenance on the building = £14,330.09"

Could you please provide a breakdown of this spend and the providers that you paid the money out to?

Could you also advise if this spend related to making the premises habitable/fit for purpose (ie was a one off cost), or related to on-going annual costs necessary for the continued use of the premises for business purposes?

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Paula Egerton

Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Pennington Tea Rooms Maintenance Costs'.

I do not feel that you have properly answered my request. Firstly, you have not provided any details of the providers that you paid and secondly, the breakdown you provide is meaningless.

I would be grateful if you could provide a more meaningful response.

Thanks

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

Dear Ms Williams,

I acknowledge receipt of your email. As your original request was made under FoI and dealt with by that process, and you are unhappy with the response then, in accordance with the FoI Act, section 45 - Code of Practice, we need to escalate this to a Senior Officer Review. If you remain unhappy following the senior officer review you can then complain to the Information Commissioner. But, if you were to do so now the Information Commissioner will you refer back to us to exhaust our procedures.

ICO guidance is that the review is carried out by a Senior Officer not involved in the original request and that the review take no longer than 20 working days in most cases, or 40 in exceptional circumstances.
Regards,

Complaints and Information Team
