Your Ref:

 

Dear Mr Young

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) ACT 2002

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION REGULATIONS 2004

 

Please accept our apologies for the late response. Further to your
enquiry, on behalf of East Lothian Council I am now able to provide our
response; please refer to the attachment.

 

Under the terms of this legislation, if you are unhappy with the way your
request has been handled, you are entitled to request that we undertake an
internal review.  Please note, however, that both the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the Environmental Information
(Scotland) Regulations 2004 only relate to the release of information. 
The Scottish Information Commissioner publishes the following guidance
about internal reviews:

 

You can ask the authority to review its decision if it does not respond or
you are unhappy with the way it has dealt with your request, for example
by:

 

·     refusing to give you the information

·     failing to reply to you within the time limit allowed

·     claiming the information is exempt

·     failing to give you advice about, and help with, making your request

·     asking you to pay a fee that you feel is unreasonable

 

 

We must receive such a request within 40 working days of the date of this
notice.  A request to review our decision must be in writing (e-mail is
acceptable) or another permanent format.  When writing, you should include
your reasons as to why you are unhappy with our response and why you wish
it to be reviewed.  In order to comply with the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), your reasons for dissatisfaction must relate
to your information request only.  Please address this request to:

 

Data Protection and Freedom of Information Compliance Officer

Licensing Administration and Democratic Services

East Lothian Council

John Muir House

Haddington

EH41 3HA

 

Email: [East Lothian Council request email]

 

We will then have 20 working days from the date we receive your request in
order to complete our review and give you our decision.  Please note that
in some circumstances it may be necessary to appoint a senior officer not
previously involved in this case to carry out the review.

 

If you are still not satisfied with our decision following the review
process, then you may ask the Office of the Scottish Information
Commissioner (OSIC) to investigate the matter.  OSIC’s application form
can be found at
[1]http://www.itspublicknowledge.info/YourR....
