Dear B Angus,

I requested information from Angus Council on the 22nd October 2013 regarding vacant Residential Council homes in Montrose.

The date for the latest response to my request is today, 19th November 2013.

I wanted to check if there is any reason that the information has not been received by myself i.e has the request not been received because of email filters, or have a requested information incorrectly?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your time.

Yours sincerely,

L Forsyth

Dear AngusBM,

The response to my request has been delayed. By law, the authority should normally have responded promptly and by 19 November 2013.

Please contact me ASAP. The information requested is now delaying the report I need to complete.

Yours sincerely,

L Forsyth

Dear Mr Forsyth

 

I refer to your undernoted follow-up messages of yesterday’s and today’s
date with regard to an outstanding response to your information request
dated 22 October 2013.  I am sorry that the Council has not responded by
the statutory deadline of 19 November 2013.

 

We have emailed the relevant service and reminded them that a response is
now overdue.  However, as I have not been able to speak to the relevant
officer in the Communities Directorate who is dealing with your request I
am unable to advise you when a response will be issued to you. 

 

Please refer to the information set out in the attached document which
explains your right to complain if you are unhappy with how the Council

Dear Mr. Friedrich,

Thank you for your reply to my email.

You have stated that you are unable to tell me when to expect the information I have requested, due to being unable to contact the officer dealing with my request.

Does this mean you won't be contacting the officer again so that I can have some idea of when to expect the information? Will it be a week, or will it be a year? Can I contact the officer directly?

The request for this information has been done so for a reason. It's imperative that I receive the information requested, either on or before Tuesday 26th Nov 2013 due to my deadline.

If you are unable to assist me, please give me details of who can. Would it be helpful if I visited the Montrose Access office, would someone be able to give me some information there at least?

I look forward to your prompt response.

Regards

L Forsyth

Dear Mr Forsyth

 

I refer to your follow-up message of yesterday's date with regard to the
Council's outstanding response to your request.

 

In response to your question I have been advised that the  Council’s
Communities directorate have been undergoing a version change to their
Housing Management system and have had to carry out rigorous testing to
ensure that the system is robust.  For this reason I believe there will be
a backlog for these kind of requests but I would expect a response to go
out to you as soon as the workload of officers permits them to issue a
comprehensive response.  I should mention that the Council takes its
responsibilities under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act very
seriously and I apologise once again for the delay in responding to your
request.

 

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Martin Friedrich

Dear Mr Forsyth

 

I refer to your undernoted request for information dated 22 October 2013
and subsequent correspondence.

 

The Council’s Communities Directorate have advised that on running the
search query for your request on the revised Housing Management system the
system Administrator came to the view that the resulting information
appeared to be unrealistic, thus requiring further verification.  However,
we would nevertheless hope to be able to issue a response within the next
few days.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Martin Friedrich
