Dear Lady Fleming,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request dated 5^th February
2019  which has been registered under reference FOI 8526.

 

Complaints to Magistrates for Council Tax (CT) Liability Orders.

 

Going as far back as is reasonable (eg 5 years), up to the most recent
data available, Please could you provide me with a table of information
under the following headings:-

 

1.  Date Of hearing

length of hearing defended/undefended 5. Number of CT accounts Liability
Order made against 6. Total costs awarded to Billing authority 7. Actual
cost of preparing for and attending the hearing.

 

As the Council has concerns over the receipt of anonymous and, possibly,
pseudonymous requests, it has decided to tighten procedures and reserves
the right to ask for proof of identity. Therefore I would appreciate it if
you could provide, electronically or otherwise, some proof of your
identity.

 

The usual forms of proof such as passport, drivers licence or a utility
bill are acceptable but other formats will be considered as long as they
demonstrate the genuine identity of the requestor.

 

A request for information must contain the ‘real name’ and address of the
requestor:

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 8(1)(b):

 

In this Act any reference to a “request for information” is a reference to
such a request which—

 

        “…states the name of the applicant and an address for
correspondence”

 

I have attached the ICO guidance (Identity or motives of the applicant)
and would draw your attention to the section on page 4.

Dear Lady Fleming,

Thank you for your email dated 20th February 2019.

In my email dated 6th February 2019 I did ask for proof of identity which as yet has not been forthcoming. As you have submitted an appeal to the ICO I will wait for them to approach us for the details of the issue.
Until then your request will remain on hold pending the outcome of the enquiry or the submission of proof of identity.

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience this causes but, as I have previously advised, we have reasons for taking this approach.

Regards,

Kevin Rance
