Dear Lewisham Council, I did not receive your response to my request. I am therefore requesting an inernal review please.
Dear Lewisham Council,
I have neither received a response to my FOI request, no any response to my request for an internal review.
This is not acceptable, particularly for the public government body. I insist you acknowledge the receipt of my last request within 2 working days and confirm the intiation of the internal review within 5 working days. Failure to do so will result in the matter being referred to the local MP for further investigation.
Freedom of Information Act 2000
We sincerely apologise for the delay in responding to your FOI request. A
member of the planning team and a member of the team that deal with
Freedom Of Information Requests both of whom were dealing with this
request have both since left the Council which unfortunately resulted in
your request being overlooked. We can only apologise for this error and
for any inconvenience this has caused you.
