Dear Mr Higgins

 

Thank you for your information request of 9 October 2014.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

I request a breakdown of the Scottish independence referendum results
showing the numbers of yes, no, and refused/spoiled by ward in the
Aberdeen City Council Area.

The Aberdeen City area total was not counted by ward and as such the
information requested is not held.

 

ACC is unable to provide you with information on a breakdown of the
Scottish independence referendum results showing the numbers of yes, no,
and refused/spoiled by ward as it is not held by ACC.  In order to comply
with its obligations under the terms of Section 17 of the FOISA, ACC
hereby gives notice that this information is not held by it.

 

However, information on the referendum results is available on ACC’s
website at the following web link which may help with your request:

 

Scottish Independence Referendum 2014:
[1]http://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/council_g....

 

In particular, the Declaration of the Local Total can be found here:
[2]http://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/nmsruntim....

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Anna Buchan

Information Compliance Officer
