Dear Emiri Dawson,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) - INFORMATION REQUEST

 

Following your request for information of 14 April 2021, and our
acknowledgement of 15 April 2021, the City of London (CoL) responds as
follows.

 

In accordance with section 17 of the FOIA, this response acts as a refusal
notice.

 

FOIA Section 12 – Appropriate Limit

 

In accordance with section 1(1)(a) of the FOIA the CoL confirms that it
would hold some of the information relevant to the request concerning
Section 106 Planning Agreements. However, it estimates that to comply with
the request would exceed the cost/time allowed for in the Freedom of
Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations
2004 (made under section 12 of the FOIA), called (as you may know) the
'appropriate limit', of £450, representing 18 hours work by one person
equivalent. Public authorities are not required to comply with requests
free of charge which it is estimated may exceed the appropriate limit.
Where they do comply, they are allowed to charge the full permitted cost,
at the statutory chargeable rate of £25 an hour. For resource reasons, it
is the practice of the CoL not to comply with requests which exceed the
appropriate limit.

 

In accordance with the FOI Fees Regulations an authority is allowed to
take into account, in calculating the estimated compliance time, the time
taken in –

 

"(a) determining whether it holds the information,

(b) locating the information,

(c) retrieving the information, and

(d) extracting the information from a document containing it."

 

To locate, retrieve and extract the information you have requested, i.e.
the total Section 106 Contributions received and dates, contributions
allocated and date allocated, contributions spent and dates when spent,
contributions unspent, and the party that paid the contribution in the
time frame requested, would be an excessive burden on the CoL’s resources
at this time. Officers are mainly working from home due to Covid-19 and
require access to hard copies of files in order to collate and validate
the information and send to you. 

 

The Section 106 documents are tens of pages long and there are
approximately 60 to review. If each document takes 20 minutes to review,
when charged at a statutory rate of £25 per hour, the estimated total cost
for this information would be £500.00.

 

It is difficult sensibly to make an estimate but this estimate has been
calculated on the basis of 20 minute inspection time for each document to
ensure the content is relevant and correlates directly to your information
request. Clearly in reality, the search times would doubtless be much
greater.

 

Please also note that the Commissioner has stated (FS 50227557) with
regard to FOIA section 12, to which the above Fees Regulations relate,
that the purpose of the section "is to prevent the possibility of a
disproportionate level of search and that it is reasonable in these
circumstances to adjudicate on the basis of a reasonable estimate of the
worst case scenario". Nevertheless, we consider that our estimate is not a
worse case estimate but a very conservative one, as explained above.

 

Finally, please note that the Commissioner has stated (FS 50353495) that
“Section 12 of the Act provides an exclusion from complying with a
request. It is not subject to a public interest Test”.

 

In accordance with best practice guidance as described in the Information
Commissioner's decision notice ref FS 50203140, after applying the
appropriate limit a public authority is required to provide advice and
assistance, in so far as is possible, as to ways in which an applicant
could reduce his/her request so that it may fall within the appropriate
limit. However, where in general a request is broad in nature and scope,
the Commissioner has upheld the view (FS 50353385, FS 50353499) that it
can be impossible to offer any advice and assistance to enable the
applicant to narrow a request.

 

We consider that in this instance, because of the nature of your request,
the amount of information involved, and the amount of time required to
retrieve, read, extract and collate the information, the CoL is unable to
provide guidance as to how to narrow it.

 

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact us.

 

If you wish to make a complaint about the way the CoL has managed your
request under the FOIA, please make your complaint in writing to our
Complaints Officer at [1][email address].

dissatisfied, you may request the Information Commissioner to investigate.

monitoring compliance with the FOIA. Please contact: Information
