If you are unhappy with the way that this request has been resolved, then you may ask for an internal review of this decision by writing to The Executive Head of Corporate and Cultural Services (Jeremy Cook) at The Town Hall, Chapel Road, Worthing, BN11 1HA.

You may also make a complaint under Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act to the Information Commissioner, who can be contacted at Whycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF. However please note that he would normally expect that any internal review procedures have been exhausted prior to contacting him.
