Dear Mr Lovegrove

 

Your request for information SOT75366

 

Although we do hold the information that you have requested, we estimate
that the aggregated cost of complying with your request would be more than
£450.  This amount is called the ‘appropriate limit’ and is specified in
regulations.

 

When it would cost more than £450 to locate, retrieve and extract the
information that is requested, Section 12 of the Freedom of Information
Act allows us to refuse the request.

 

 

We are able to provide the total numbers of applications received for part
A of the question but with regards to breaking these figures down by
accredited and non accredited landlords we would need to go into each
record and then the landlord accreditation database which would take at
least 5 minutes per application.

For question A there are over 500 applications so this would take at least
41 hours for question A.

 

For Part B we estimate there being over 1200 applications to review which
would also take at least 5 minutes each, thus totaling 100 hours.

 

 

If you make a new request for a smaller amount of information it may then
be within the appropriate limit, although we cannot guarantee that it
would be and we would have to assess your new request.

 

If you have any queries about this email, please do not hesitate to
contact us.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to: Information Rights Manager, Customer Feedback and
Information Rights Team, Corporate Services, Stoke-on-Trent City Council,
Floor 2, Civic Centre, Glebe Street, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 1HH or email
[Stoke on Trent City Council request email].

 

If, after contacting us, you are not content with the outcome, you may ask
the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Information
Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have already used our
appeal procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The
Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF, tel: 0303 123 1113 or you can visit their website at
