Dear Ms Taylor,

 

18236 - Council Software Systems

 

I am writing in response to your request dated 13 September 2018 .  This
has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

The Council’s response to your specific questions is set out below:

 

1. What Software Systems are currently used by the Council for Planning,
Building control and Public Protection/Licencing/Environmental Health?

3. Do you have any planned upgrades of the software? If so, when?

All currently undergoing upgrades

4. How much does each system cost annually?

The Council does hold the requested information but considers this is
exempt under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act, because the
information is reasonably accessible to you by other means, because it is
already in the public domain.

 

Section 21 of the Act provides that:

 

(1) Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant otherwise
than under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)—

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or on payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

 

The Council publishes expenditure data on its website at:

so, when?

Advice and Assistance : Direct Marketing

If you are a company that intends to use the names and contact details of
council officers (or other officers) provided in this response for direct
marketing, you need to be registered with the Information Commissioner to
process personal data for this purpose.  You must also check that the
individual (whom you wish to contact for direct marketing purposes) is not
registered with one of the Preference Services to prevent Direct
Marketing.  If they are you must adhere to this preference. You must also
ensure you comply with the Privacy Electronic and Communications
Regulations (PECR).  For more information follow this Link
[3]www.ico.org.uk

 

For the avoidance of doubt the provision of council (and other) officer
names and contact details under FOI does not give consent to receive
direct marketing via any media and expressly does not constitute a ‘soft
opt-in’ under PECR.

 

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 submitted within 2 months of the date of receipt of the response to
your original request and should be addressed to the Monitoring Officer,
1^st Floor, Civic Centre 3, Market Street, Huddersfield HD1 2EY. 
Alternatively, you can send an email to:
[4][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 [5]www.ico.org.uk and gives more information
about the role and duties of the Commissioner.  The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
